A search of one of the suspect’s house led to the recovery of 1.5 kg of hashish along with psychotropic substances and ready joints. The second suspect was also present in the house at the time. The first suspect told the police that he used to source the drugs from yet another suspect and led them to his house. A kilo of hashish was found from the third suspect’s house who also confessed being the source of the drugs. All the suspects were sent to the concerned authorities.
Fugitives nabbed Two fugitives were arrested after police chased them from Riggae to the Fifth Ring Road and then through King Fahad Road, finally nabbing them when they met with an accident in Mubarak Al-Kabeer. The two had liquor and drugs on them at the time of their arrest. A security source said the first suspect was found wanted in a drugs-related case in which he was sentenced to a two-year jail term while the second was also wanted by drug enforcement agents. The source said when the policemen were trying to make them sit in the patrol car, they escaped towards the Fifth Ring Road, taking the wrong lane, and were followed till they had to take the right lane along the King Fahad Road till the Mubarak Al-Kabeer area. The sources said in their desperation to escape the patrol car in pursuit, the suspects jumped four red lights but the driver lost control and collided with the pavement. The two were then arrested and illicit substances recovered from them.
