Officers seize over 80 kilograms of hashish in Ankara
Security forces confiscated more than 80 kilograms (180 pounds) of hashish during separate operations carried out in the Turkish capital Ankara on Jan. 2, state-run Anadolu Agency reported, citing security sources.
The teams were deployed after Ankara’s counter-narcotics police force received an anonymous tip-off about distribution of drugs.
Police then carried out the operation against suspected drug dealers in Ankara. One suspect was reportedly detained in the operation after he tried to flee.
Meanwhile, in another raid the Kayseri provincial police department’s anti-narcotics police force halted a bus and seized 2.8 kilograms of hashish from a woman who had wrapped the drugs around her body with packaging tape. The woman was also arrested by police, the agency reported.
