Anti-narcotics officers conducted a search of their luggage, leading to the seizure of the 17 bales weighing a total of 34 kilograms. Consequently, both suspects were taken into custody.

The incident highlights ongoing efforts by law enforcement to crack down on drug trafficking activities, particularly within public transportation hubs.

Authorities continue to investigate the case to determine the full extent of the suspects’ involvement in narcotics distribution.
