Tunisia-Hergla toll station: Seizure of 680 grams of cocaine

In a significant crackdown on drug trafficking, Tunisian security forces dismantled a drug trafficking network working on the A01 motorway at the Hergla toll station.

This operation resulted in the detention of six people and the confiscation of various drugs, including 680 grams of cocaine.

An initial vehicle inspection led to the apprehension of three individuals discovered with cocaine and a sum of money in foreign currencies. A subsequent operation resulted in the arrest of three additional people found in possession of different quantities of cannabis, narcotic tablets, cocaine, as well as money in both Tunisian dinars and foreign currencies.

Moreover, in the Tunis region, a patrol arrested three dealers, one of whom is a notorious criminal previously condemned to 10 years in prison for drug trafficking. These individuals were found with cannabis and proceeds from drug sales.

Following these arrests, the judicial authorities have directed that the appropriate legal actions be taken.
