The Tetouan judiciary police arrested two suspects on Sunday, one of whom was only 16, for being in possession of seizure tablets.
Rabat – Tetouan judicial police have arrested two suspects, a repeat offender and his accomplice, a 16-year-old boy, caught in a vehicle with 6,000 Rivotril tablets. The General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) issued a statement about the arrests on Sunday.
Rivotril, also called clonazepam, is used as a sedative to decrease seizures or anxiety. The continuous use of Rivotril might lead its users to experience a dramatic personality change, either a form of explosive anger or inability to feel deep emotion such as happiness or sadness. The medicine is only available legally with a doctor’s prescription.
After searching a house, the police seized another car and a large sum of money, which the DGSN said was the proceeds from the suspect’s illegal.
Police placed the adult suspect in custody pending the completion of the investigation and the minor under police surveillance.
