Rabat – Police in the city of Marrakech have arrested a drug trafficking suspect and his main supplier.
The police arrested the first suspect, who was the subject of a national search warrant, in possession of hard drugs as well as cocaine.
The investigation into the first suspect led to information about a second suspect who police believe to be the main drug supplier. Police subsequently arrested the second suspect, a sub-Saharan African.
Security services seized an unspecified amount of cocaine during a “carefully prepared” raid to arrest the suspect, a security source quoted by Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) has said on November 4.
Police also arrested four other suspects, including a woman for drug consumption.
Police put all suspects involved in the case in custody for further investigation to arrest other possible accomplices.
