Internal Security Forces arrested a Lebanese national for transporting Captagon pills
Internal Security Forces arrested a driver who allegedly transferred the primary chemicals used to manufacture Captagon pills in the area.
The ISF’s Intelligence Branch stopped a Mitsubishi pick-up truck on its way to Beirut, at the Dahr al-Baydar checkpoint, and found it filled with the raw chemicals. Security forces stormed the storage center in Baalbeck simultaneously.
The ISF searched thermos barrels seized from the pick-up truck, discovering four million Captagon pills stored in 228 of the total 366 barrels.
The driver of the pick-up truck, a Lebanese national, admitted to being in charge of transporting the chemicals from Baalbeck to Beirut. He typically delivered the chemicals to an other Lebanese national, to transport them out of Lebanon.
