The authority stated that the seizure process took place after the consignment of “cocoa” was subjected to customs procedures and detected through security techniques at the port, where the seizures were found technically hidden among the cocoa beans.

And it indicated, today (Friday), that the recipients of the seizures were arrested inside the Kingdom, in conjunction with the seizure of the shipment in coordination with the General Directorate of Narcotics Control.

Last August, the authority thwarted two attempts to smuggle large quantities of Captagon pills into the Kingdom through the port of Jeddah. In the first attempt, more than 8.7 million Captagon pills were seized, which were hidden in the consignment of “cocoa”, while during the second attempt, 1.6 million hidden pills were seized.
