Friday, the spokesperson for the Public Security Directorate said that the employees of the Anti-Narcotics Department dealt with a drug dealing and smuggling operation during which large quantities of narcotics were seized that were about to be smuggled outside of Jordan.

The people involved tried to smuggle one million captagon pills outside of the country by putting them inside a truck filled with carbon.

Four people involved in the case were arrested through raids, while work is underway to arrest the rest of those involved in the case, as the authorities raided a farm that belongs to one of the suspects, but he was not found inside and search is still underway for him and others.

The spokesperson stressed that the investigation is ongoing and more information will be announced according to the course of the investigation.
