Police foil plan to get drugs into jail.

Dubai The Anti-Narcotics Department foiled an attempt to smuggle drugs to two detainees on April 30, in cooperation with the Department of Punitive and Reformative Establishments.

The department received a confirmed tip that an Asian man in Al Quoz was going to smuggle drugs to the two detained men, who have criminal records and are detained on narcotics-related charges, Major General Abdul Jalil Mahdi, Director of the Anti-Narcotics Department of Dubai Police, said.

The suspect, identified as 37-year-old B.F.S, was arrested, and police raided his apartment in Al Quoz.

He confessed he was expecting marijuana and psychotropic drugs from two persons he met, for delivery to the detainees, police said.

A team from the department set a trap to catch the two suppliers when they arrived to deliver the drugs to the first suspect. All three suspects are charged with various offences.
