A gang that peddled drugs in 67 locations has been busted, with the arrest of some individuals aged between 23 and 30.

The Ras Al Khaimah Police said the gang members promoted and trafficked drugs in the areas they were active in.

Colonel Ibrahim Jassim Al Tunaiji, director of the Anti-Narcotics Department, said the gang was placed under surveillance after the police received a tip-off.

The police tailed the suspects even as they changed their modus operandi to evade detection. The suspects were caught red-handed and various types of drugs were seized from them.
