DUBAI: Three people were arrested after Jordanian police on Monday raided a house in East Amman that was being used as a crystal meth laboratory.
The raid was carried out after agents of the anti-narcotics department received a tip off.
The officers did not find the suspect in his home, but discovered and subsequently seized chemicals used for manufacturing methamphetamine.
The man was arrested later during a follow-up operation, where he also said he had an accomplice who worked with him to produce and sell the narcotics.
In a similar effort in Jordan’s campaign to crack down on the illegal drug trade, police raided a chalet west of Al-Balqa and arrested a man found in possession of marijuana and as well as a firearm on suspicion after he tried to flee.
Similar police operations were also undertaken in Zarqa, northeast of Amman, where suspects have been arrested while in possession of illegal drugs and narcotics.
