The Anti-Narcotics Department (AND) Tuesday seized 300,000 drug pills which were in the possession of two persons who were trying to transport them off-road in the desert.
The Public Security Department spokesperson said in a statement AND personnel were tipped off about two individuals who intended to transport a large quantity of drugs off-road in the desert and promptly began investigating.
The investigation team, he added, verified the information, determined the time to move the contraband and laid several ambushes along the routes the smugglers intended to take.
It said one of the patrols spotted the terrain vehicle used by the smugglers and stopped it after a chase, arresting the two suspects and seizing the drugs and a firearm.
The case was referred to the State Security Court prosecutor, he added.
