BEIRUT: Lebanese police have arrested a drug trafficker along with two other suspects wanted in connection with alleged drug abuse and the buying of stolen property.

A statement Monday from the Internal Security Forces said an investigation led to the arrest Sunday of Sh. H, 33, at a police checkpoint at Dahr al-Baidar.

The ISF said 1 kilogram of marijuana was found in the spare wheel of the suspect's vehicle. The suspect had intended to smuggle the hash from the Bekaa Valley to Beirut, according to the statement.

Also Sunday, at the same checkpoint, ISF officers apprehended two Lebanese nationals who had arrest warrants out for them: H.S., 29, charged with drug abuse and A.J., 41, charged with buying stolen property.
