By Staff

Saudi customs men at a small port seized nearly 2.5 million captagon pills concealed inside a machine for washing dates, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

The inspectors at the Western Red Sea port of Dubai decided to search the strange machine which was brought to the Kingdom aboard a wooden dhow (boat).

“The inspectors found nearly 2.49 million captagon pills hidden expertly inside the machine…the machine’s owners were arrested,” Sada said.
