Humaidi said inspection systems indicated unusual intensity in the air cylinders, so one of them was opened and 35,000 captagon tablets were found inside. The second cylinder contained 55 tablets and a large quantity of shabu with an estimated weight of 3.850 kg. The driver and drugs were sent to concerned authorities.
