Saudi civil servant caught selling drugs in official car

Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police arrested a local civil servant after catching him red-handed selling drugs and alcohol in a government car.

An undercover from the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice had contacted the unnamed employee to buy some drugs and liquor.

When they met in the capital Riyadh and the detective paid him, other Commission members stormed the place and arrested the man.

“After searching his car, they found drugs, imported liquor, a gun and a small electronic balance for weighing drugs,” Sabq daily said.
