Six Syrians arrested over drug-related offenses
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Six Syrians were arrested in two separate incidents related to manufacturing and smuggling Captagon pills, the National News agency reported Wednesday. 

Security forces at Rafik Hariri International Airport caught one Syrian national as he was reportedly trying to smuggle 30,000 Captagon pills in specially made cavities in clothes hangers in his luggage. 

The suspect’s destination was believed to be another Arab country. The NNA reported that he confessed to trying to smuggle drugs during the preliminary investigation. 

Separately, in the Bekaa Valley village of Jabbouleh, security forces arrested five Syrians while they were working on a machine that manufactures Captagon pills. 

The machine was confiscated and a security unit from the Drug Control Office held raids in the surrounding villages, particularly Dar al-Wasaa, in search of drugs.
