K9 unit sniffs out two drug smugglers

The Drug Enforcement Department (DED) has arrested two individuals with copious amounts of drugs in a house in Male.

The two individuals who were arrested are a 28-year-old male and a 19-year-old female.

According to the DED, they received a tip that drugs were being packed and distributed from the house.

Based on this tip, they had searched the house on Sunday under a search warrant using its ‘K9 squad’ – which is the police’s specially trained dog squad.

The DED found two empty film canisters containing a substance that is believed to be a drug, two shopping bags containing a different substance, and 18 smaller packets of substances.

Additionally, the police found MVR15,000 in cash and some foreign cash, along with a stamp with the Maldivian customs logo on it.

The court had ordered the two individuals to be remanded at a place designated by the home ministry until the investigation is over. Whilst the female suspect got 10 days in remand, the male suspect got 15 days.
