Dubai police seized 500 kilograms of pure cocaine worth more than 500 million dirhams ($136 million) in a drugs raid, Dubai's media office said on Sunday.

As per details, the police arrested one person of Middle-Eastern origins, who was operating as an intermediary for an international drug syndicate.

As per reports, police foiled the smuggling attempt after receiving a tip about a cargo container carrying the contraband through a sea port.

 “The narcotics, worth more than 500 million dirhams ($136 million) in street value, were well-hidden within the structure of a cargo container,” said officials.

Director of the Anti-Narcotics Department, Eid Mohammed Thani Hareb in a statement said, “Once the shipment arrived, the suspect transported the illegal drugs to another emirate and stored them in a warehouse with the aim of selling and promoting the harmful toxins”.

It added that security officers raided the warehouse and caught the man “red-handed”.
