Police arrested two suspects involved in a drug trafficking network.
Rabat – Police seized one ton and 630 kilograms of cannabis resin, a statement from the General Directorate of National Security said.
During the operation, the security services arrested two suspects aged 41 and 46, believed to be involved in the drug trafficking operation. Police also seized a vehicle used for drug trafficking and a considerable amount of money from previous drug trafficking operations by the suspects.
