KUWAIT: Cooperation between customs detectives and the southern ports administration resulted in the discovery of two containers containing 4.5 million Captagon pills, a large quantity of chewing tobacco and counterfeit products. The contraband will be sent to concerned authorities.
Customs officers became suspicious after four containers remained at the port for 90 days without being claimed by anyone. The containers were searched – two did not contain anything illegal, the third had nearly 4.5 million Captagon tablets hidden in it while the fourth container contained counterfeit goods, in addition to banned tobacco products. The customs administration thanked the Fire Force for helping in cutting into the metal to extract the pills.
