Several persons were arrested and 200 thousand pills were seized in a drug bust by the Anti-Narcotics Department, according to a statement released by the Public Relations Department of the Public Service Directorate (PSD).

The statement detailed the incident, saying that a group of people were preparing to smuggle large amounts of drugs outside the country in a secret compartment in a transport vehicle.

The police raided the place where the vehicle was being kept, resulting in the arrest of one suspect, and the seizure of 200 thousand pills.

Two other suspects were later arrested, and the case was referred to the district attorney of the State Security Court.
