UAE: Dubai authorities intercept more than 5kg of cocaine

Dubai Customs’ inspection staff at Dubai International Airport seized 5.6 kilograms of cocaine narcotics carried by an inbound female traveler arriving from a Latin American country.

Inspectors discovered a secret pocket inside the inner lining. It was loaded with black plastic sacks wrapped in transparent adhesive. They contained white powder, which after examination turned out to be cocaine, weighing 3.2 kilograms.

Careful inspection of the bag’s contents went on to find another 2,473 grams cocaine concealed in bottles of body-care products, including shampoo and moisturizing body creams.
