Authorities in Sharjah have foiled an attempt to smuggle more than 93 kg of drugs into the country.
The illegal items (crystal meth and methadone tablets) were hidden under a container carrying foodstuff coming from a neighbouring country.
When checking the container upon its late arrival during the Eid al-Adha holidays, Customs officials found out that goods were kept in a suspicious manner.
The shipment was checked using the latest technologies, which led to the discovery of the drugs that were meticulously concealed inside iron cylinders.
The drugs were then seized in coordination with the concerned authorities.
