Saudi authorities seize 765,000 amphetamine pills hidden in watermelons
The narcotics were in the possession of five people, including three Arab residents and two Saudi citizens, the official spokesman of the General Directorate of Narcotics Control said.
Maj. Muhammad Al-Nujaidi said the five men were arrested and referred to relevant judicial authorities.
The report did not specify whether the pills were captagon - the amphetamine wreaking havoc across the Middle East - nor did it say where the pills came from.
Captagon pills are produced mainly in war-torn Syria and smuggled to large consumer markets in the Gulf.
Saudi Arabia is the biggest captagon market, and the kingdom's customs body seized 119 million of the pills last year.
