$8 Million Worth Cocaine Seized from 4 Foreigners in Kaslik
A unit from the Drug Enforcement Bureau seized 53 kilograms of cocaine worth an estimated $8 Million from two vehicles driven by foreigners in the coastal town of Kaslik, the National News Agency reported Tuesday.
NNA said that the unit seized the drugs from a Range Rover and a Mercedes. Two of its occupants were Palestinians and the other two were Irish and Dutch.
The 53 kilograms of cocaine were “stashed in secret places inside the two vehicles,” NNA said.
The four men were taken to the Hobeish police station in Beirut for questioning. Investigators are now trying to find out how the big quantity of drugs was smuggled to Lebanon.
