RIYADH — The Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority at Jeddah Islamic Port has foiled an attempt to smuggle more than 8,735,000 Captagon pills hidden in a consignment of cocoa beans that arrived at the port.



The Authority said that, in coordination with the General Directorate of Narcotics Control (GDNC), the recipients of the pills were also arrested inside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, noting that they were three persons.

The authority called on everyone to contact the number 1910 designated for security reports on smuggling crimes and violations of the provisions of the unified customs system.

The 1910 security reports center receives and follows up on the reports in complete secrecy, with a financial reward for the person reporting the crime if the report's information is correct. — SPA
