Drug runner gets the hump as Saudi forces stop camel laden with pills

:: Saudi border guards have foiled an attempt to smuggle half a million illegal pills into the Kingdom … by camel.

The drugs were loaded on the creature’s back before trying to cross the Saudi border at Halat Ammar.

Border Guard Spokesman Col. Saher bin Mohammed Al-Harbi said electronic monitoring systems spotted a man riding a camel trying to cross the Kingdom’s land border with Jordan.

The man was later found to be attempting to smuggle a quantity of narcotic pills into the Kingdom.

A Sudanese man was arrested while trying to bury four bags that were loaded on the camel’s back.

The bags contained a total of 518,000 tablets of the amphetamine “Captagon.” All security measures against the smuggler were taken immediately in cooperation with other security agencies.

This arrest comes as a continuation of the Border Guards’ efforts to follow up and monitor the criminal networks targeting the Kingdom and its people with narcotics and toxins.
