The Dubai Police’s General Department of Anti-Narcotics received information that the two suspects, identified as A.G.H. (GCC national) and H.M. were dealing in drugs. Their counterparts in Ajman were informed and an action plan finalised.

The police raided the flat of the two suspects in Ajman and found 12,750 drug pills which could have harmful effects on the nervous system.

Major-General Abdul Jalil Mahdi, Director of the Dubai’s General Department of Anti-Narcotics, said the arrest succeeded because of the coordination between the anti-narcotic officers of Ajman and Dubai.

During interrogation, the suspects said they were planning to smuggle more drugs into the UAE to distribute them among youth. They have been referred to the Dubai Public Prosecution on charges of drug trafficking and possession.

Maj-Gen Jalil Mahdi praised the police teams led by Colonel Saeed Humaid Al Housani, Director of the Anti-Narcotic Department of the Ajman Police, for the good coordination and fast action which led to the success of the operation.

He pointed to the dangerous methods used by criminals to spread drug use, especially pills among youth, and said this necessitated families to give more attention to and monitor their children and prevent them from being lured by drug traffickers and bad friends who would destroy their life.
