The Bureau for the Control of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances’ Ajdabiya Branch reported the successful interception of a large cargo of illicit drugs on its route to Tobruk.

Patrols in the eastern area intercepted a consignment of narcotics from Sabha to Tobruk, weighing 500 kilograms and travelling through five continents aboard a transport vehicle. This is the government’s third seizure in a month.

The branch emphasized that the seizures were not a result of chance, but of the integrated coordination of the drug control branches and offices working together as a cohesive unit.

It further said that in the early hours of Saturday morning, Anti-Narcotics Bureau patrols in the eastern area confiscated a significant amount on a transport truck.

The Bureau expressed thanks to the General Directorate for the Control of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances, the Eastern Region Department, the Ajdabiya Branch, and the Bureau of Evidence Collection. It also highlighted the critical role of personnel of the Department and the Arrest and Investigation Units who are faced with these gangs, which are often armed and result in injuries.
