Meth found in the suitcase of an Asian passenger.
Dubai Customs thwarts smuggling of 1.3kg of crystal meth on Friday by a passenger that flew into the country.
An Asian passenger thought he could easily smuggle narcotics into Dubai with the resumption of flights after a period of lockdown due to the spread of the Covic-19 pandemic.
The passenger assumed the streamlined procedures taken by the airport inspection officers to facilitate passenger traffic would compromise security.
Dubai Customs inspection officers suspected the passenger due to how frantic he was looking.
Therefore, leading to his suitcase was thoroughly inspected. 1.3kg of meth concealed in the inner lining of his suitcase was found.
“The smuggling attempt was successfully thwarted and the passenger was handed over to the General Directorate for Drug Control at Dubai Police following the protocols of joint work and cooperation between Dubai Customs and Dubai Police,” said Ibrahim Kamali, Director of Passenger Operations Department.
“This passenger thought he could get away with his crime assuming that control and security procedures will not be that tight at the period which sees the resumption of flights and lifting of the lockdown.”
