Four officers of Al Barsha Police Station were honoured by Dubai Police’s Commander-in-chief for foiling a drug smuggling attempt using drugs-soaked bank notes.

Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, praised the alertness and devotion of Capt. Marwan Abdullah Murad, Arrest Officer of Al Barsha Police Station; Warrant Officer Abdullah Mohammed Ahmed; 1st Policeman Abdullah Ahmad Darwish, and Policeman Marwan Saeed Taher, in ensuring Dubai’s security and safety.

Maj-Gen Al Marri presented certificates of appreciation to the officers in recognition of their efforts and dedication to work, stressing that the honour comes within the force’s vision to motivate and encourage staff members to prevent crime and provide high-quality services to ensure our society’s safety and happiness.

Drug smuggling attempt

Capt. Murad revealed that Warrant Officer Abdullah Ahmed, 1st Policeman Abdullah Darwish, and Policeman Marwan Taher were able to foil an attempt to smuggle bank notes of Dh100, impregnated with crystal meth, to a detainee by his fellow suspect who had pretended to visit him and tried to smuggle the drugs through the notes.

“Our cops were alerted by the suspect suspicious behaviour as he had insisted to hand the money to the detainee, so they inspected the money and detected the drugs”, Murad added.

The smuggler was arrested and the case has been referred to Dubai Public Prosecution.
