20,000 Captagon pills seized on Tabuk border

TABUK: Durra Customs officials on the Saudi-Jordanian border thwarted an attempt to smuggle 20,500 Captagon pills hidden in a vehicle.

According to Al-Hayat, the director general of Durra Customs, Mohammed Al-Abush, said that during the usual customs inspection, one part of the quantity was found hidden in a hose used for agricultural irrigation, another part in the luggage of the vehicle’s owner, and another part was found beneath the floor on the inside of the vehicle.

This is the third attempt thwarted by Customs officials in less than a month. Three weeks ago, officials thwarted two attempts to smuggle 70,000 pills.
