A parcel containing drugs was sent via post from Jordan, leading to the arrest of seven Jordanians, including a woman, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

On November 4, a post company suspected a parcel sent form Jordan to Dubai contained drugs.

Searching the parcel, the police found two pieces of hashish, 782grams in weight in total.

In coordination with the post company, an Anti-Narcotics officer was assigned to act as an employee.

AF submitted the ID of the recipient AM, 27, a butcher and resident of Abu Dhabi.

As he was leaving, police arrested AF who received a phone call from AM.
