Two arrests in Fez for drug trafficking and psychotropic drugs

Two individuals were arrested on Wednesday morning by elements of the anti-gang brigade of the city of Fez, in coordination with the regional judicial police service, on the basis of precise information provided by the services of the General Directorate for the surveillance of territory, for their suspicion of links with a criminal network active in drug trafficking and psychotropic drugs.

The suspects, aged 32 and 34, were arrested at a traffic checkpoint at the “Msoun” station on the Oujda-Fez highway, immediately after their arrival in two light vehicles, said a press release from the Directorate General of National Security (DGSN).

The same source indicates that the search operations carried out inside the vehicles allowed the seizure of 1 ton and 300 kilograms of chira, in addition to a sum of money of 19,800 dirhams, suspected of being the loot of this criminal activity.

The defendants were placed in police custody as part of the investigation conducted under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor’s office, with a view to determining the possible ramifications of this criminal activity and revealing all the criminal acts alleged against the persons concerned.
