Two suspects arrested after 24-hour surveillance

The Dubai Police have arrested two drug dealers and seized 40kg of crystal meth in an operation code-named ‘black bag’. The police named the operation after a black bag containing the huge stash of drugs that the suspects were transporting.

Brigadier Eid Mohammed Thani Hareb, director of the General Department of Anti-Narcotics, said the police received information that the two Asian suspects would attempt to deliver the back containing the drugs. They would do so “under directions from their gang leader based in their home country”, the police learnt.

After taking permission from the Dubai Public Prosecution, the police started monitoring their movements. The police trailed them as the suspects loaded the drugs into the black bag and placed it in their vehicle. The police stopped the vehicle and searched it to recover the bag full of drugs.

According to the police, the suspects said they were to deliver it to a third person. One of the suspects said he roped in his cousin to transport the drugs for an amount of Dh30,000.
