Forces from the Saudi Mujahedeen Department seized unspecified quantities of hashish from various parts of Jazan recently, said Khaled Abdullah Qaziz, a spokesman of the forces.

He said the authorities chased a suspected vehicle and asked its driver to pull up. “The driver did not stop. Our forces then followed the vehicle and arrested the driver. He was carrying 73.3 kilograms of hashish,” he said.

Qaziz said his forces also foiled another drug-smuggling attempt in Bani Malik. “After a thorough inspection of the vehicle, our officers found it was carrying nine k0ilograms of hashish,” he said.

In Fifa, west of Aiban, Mujahedeen forces stopped another suspected vehicle and seized 4.73 kg of hashish from the driver.

“We have arrested all the three drivers and handed them over to security police for investigation,” he said.
