Four officers of Al Barsha Police Station were honoured by Dubai Police’s Commander-in-chief for foiling a drug smuggling attempt using drug-laced bank notes.

Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, praised the alertness and devotion of Capt. Marwan Abdullah Murad, Arrest Officer of Al Barsha Police Station; Warrant Officer Abdullah Mohammed Ahmed; 1st Policeman Abdullah Ahmad Darwish, and policeman Marwan Saeed Taher, in ensuring Dubai's security and safety.

Capt. Murad revealed that Warrant Officer Abdullah Ahmed, 1st Policeman Abdullah Darwish, and policeman Marwan Taher were able to foil an attempt to smuggle bank notes of Dhs100, heavily laced with crystal meth, to a detainee by his fellow suspect who had pretended to visit him and tried to smuggle the drugs through the notes.

"Our cops were alerted by the suspect's suspicious behaviour as he had insisted to hand the money to the detainee, so they inspected the money and detected the drugs," Murad added.

The smuggler was arrested and the case has been referred to Dubai Public Prosecution.
