Jordan border authorities thwart Captagon smuggling attempt
One of the trucks was carrying iron, while the other carried fruit, a media spokesperson for the customs department said.
The drugs were hidden in special caches in the trucks, the spokesperson said.
A report on the drug bust was presented to the Narcotics Control Department for further legal action. It was not clear how much Captagon was found.
Captagon is an amphetamine-type stimulant. Its production has flourished in Syria during the country’s decade-long conflict.
The smuggling of Captagon into Jordan from Syria is common.
