Acting on tips and surveillance, the GADC personnel tracked down a group of drug smugglers and managed to intercept two vehicles carrying salt bags, which turned to be the slat-like Shabu.

The smugglers were caught red-handed, the statement noted.

Al-Saleh appreciated the dedication of the GADC officers and their relentless efforts to combat drug smuggling and protect the Kuwaiti society against addiction. He also thanked the customs officers for their cooperation with the GADC, the statement added.
