‘Stay away from US citizens homes’ Drugs found in red signal violator’s car

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 13: Police have arrested a Kuwaiti man for possessing drugs and crossing the red traffic signal, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily.
A police source said the suspect was arrested by a police patrol in the suburb of Mubarak Al-Kabir.
The suspect reportedly refused to stop when police ordered him to. However, he was chased and forced to stop in Sabah Al-Salem.
Police have seized from the man a bag containing methamphetamine, known among drug traffickers as ‘shabu, crystal and ice’. The drugs were hidden under the front seat.
The suspect has been handed over to the General Department for Drug Control.

Acting on a tip-off and armed with a search and arrest warrant, police raided the home of the Asian and caught him red-handed in possession of 250 grams of heroin, 30 grams of ice, 35 grams of marijuana and a scale.
The suspect and the contraband have been handed over to the General Department for Drug Control.

Stay away ... : Hanging out in front of their homes or rather in front of homes occupied by Americans in Kuwait can be considered a crime and people caught doing so may end up at a police station for interrogation or may even be referred to the State Security police, reports Al-Rai daily.

Recently two Kuwait University students were whisked away by the Bayan police for interrogation and threatened to refer them to the State Security but were released after three hours of interrogations and intervention of the father of one of them who lives on the same street as one of the staffers of the US embassy.

The two students were arrested by police after an American woman living in Bayan informed the Operations Department of the Ministry of Interior that two persons in a car were circling near her home.

However, the release came after the father of one of the students told police he lives along the same street as the American does.
