As the Christmas holiday approaches, Customs is still stepping up anti-drug law enforcement. During an anti-drug patrol in the Yau Tong Industrial Zone today (21st), customs officers revealed that drug dealers had turned a medium-sized truck into a mobile drug storage warehouse and seized 7 kilograms inside the vehicle on the spot. Cocaine, with a market value of 6 million yuan, arrested a truck driver during the operation.
The investigation director of the Customs Narcotics Investigation Division explained the case to Bing Lung, saying that the customs officers launched an anti-drug patrol in the Yau Tong Industrial Area this morning and saw a local man acting suspiciously and got off a medium-sized truck. At the same time, he requested to search the truck and saw a batch of suspected cocaine in bags weighing about 7 kilograms with a market value of 6 million yuan in the cargo box, so he was arrested and cautioned. The arrested man was about 39 years old and reported to the police. Said the truck driver, the case is still under investigation.

Xiang Binglong pointed out that in order to hide the eyes and ears of drug dealers, common logistics trucks were used as mobile drug storage warehouses this time, and they even went to industrial areas to mix with the trucks, but they could not escape the law of the customs. It is believed that this operation smashed a drug storage warehouse, and successfully intercepted a batch of drugs flowing into the market during the Christmas holiday, and reiterated that drug trafficking is a serious crime. Once convicted, the maximum penalty is life imprisonment and a fine of 5 million yuan.
