The Asian man with the seized contraband
Asian arrested with 10,000 drug pills, 1-kg heroin, shabu

KUWAIT CITY, July 16: An Asian expatriate was arrested by anti-narcotics men in possession of a kilogram of heroin, 10 thousand narcotic pills, and a kilogram of drug substance ‘shabu’, reports Al-Seyassah. The arrest followed several reports the Drug Control General Department (DCGD) received about an Asian expatriate peddling in drugs who allegedly delivered the contraband at specific spots after the value has been paid. Usually, the suspect would drop the substance at the location and leave at once without waiting for the customer.

Security sources said the suspect operated on different mobile numbers and security operatives were able to trace his full details through intensive investigation and surveillance. Meanwhile, guarded by search and arrest warrant from public prosecution, officers raided the apartment of the suspect and confiscated the above stated contraband. He confessed trafficking in drugs and was referred with the items to Drug Prosecution.
