Over 35 Kilos of Captagon Seized at Beirut Airport
The Internal Security Forces on Sunday announced seizing more than 35 kilograms of Captagon narcotic pills at Beirut's Rafik Hariri International Airport.
“Following a thorough search operation on Saturday, the inspection unit at RHIA managed to make a new achievement through foiling an attempt to smuggle 200,500 Captagon pills weighing around 35.6 kilograms,” the ISF said in a statement.
The pills were hidden in “39 coffee packets and covered with some sweets inside four suitcases.”
Syrian travelers A. A., 25, and M. A., 22, intended to smuggle them to an Arab Gulf country, the ISF added.
The two Syrians were arrested as the confiscated material was referred to the Central Anti-Drug Bureau for further investigations.
