ISF busts top Captagon smuggling ring
The Internal Security Forces indicated in a communiqué on Wednesday that its anti-narcotics bureau had busted a top drug ring which smuggles Captagon from Lebanon to the Gulf, especially to Saudi Arabia.
The arrest came after the anti-narcotics bureau managed, in collaboration with the Information Branch, to identify and locate a key suspect who had been smuggling Captagon actively into Arab countries under the name of "Roudy Najjar" for six years.
During interrogation, the detainee admitted having conducted 12 smuggling operations to Egypt, Yemen, UAE, Sudan and Saudi Arabia.
The other members of the ring were also apprehended.
