10 detained in anti-drug operations across Turkey

Police on May 21 detained 10 suspects in anti-drug operations across Turkey, security sources said.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said police seized 100 kilograms of “skunk” — a potent form of cannabis — in the Datça district of the southwestern Muğla province.

Six suspects were detained in the operation in which a sniffer dog was used.

Separately, a suspect was detained, and 6.17 grams of methamphetamine and 42.5 grams of powdered hashish were seized in the central Kayseri province after police units stopped a vehicle on the Kayseri-Malatya highway.

Another operation in the Süleymanpaşa, Saray and Çerkezköy districts in the northwestern Tekirdağ province saw three suspects apprehended for alleged drug trafficking.

Meanwhile, in the southeastern Kahramanmaraş province, anti-drug teams seized 500 cannabis roots.
