Three men have been arrested for drug dealing in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates.
The suspects, who are all Asians, were said to have attempted to smuggle 38kgs of crystal meth into the UAE by hiding the narcotics inside fish.
According to a crime report obtained by TheCornet, the suspected drug pushers were apprehended during a tight operation by the Abu Dhabi Police and anti-narcotics officers on Thursday.
Brigadier Taher Gharib Al Dhaheri, director of the Narcotics Control in the Criminal Security Sector, explained that the gang was shocked that the police managed to uncover their methods to conceal the drugs.
“They thought that the methods they used would make them safe and dodge the security men.
“But the efficiency and competence of our teams prevented the success of their plan, and had to deal with them accordingly.
Our security men are always on the lookout and always ready to confront drug dealers,” he said.
According to police, this operation was an extension of a major operation aimed at arresting drug trafficking gangs that rely on random promotional messages through WhatsApp.
