A woman who was trying to smuggle half a kilogram of cocaine across the city earlier this week.
The drug bust took place in Medina
The bust was announced by the kingdom’s Anti-drug Authority in a tweet which featured a video capturing the busted drugs and revealed they were hidden inside the woman’s shoes and purse.
This is not the first of recent drug busts in the Kingdom -customs officers and border patrol agents routinely catch individuals attempting to smuggle large quantities of drugs.
Earlier in February, for instance, more than half a ton of hashish seized in Jazan and smugglers arrested.
