A traffic stop in Male' city led to the discovery of illegal drugs on two wrong-way drivers last week.
During the stop, one of the individuals managed to escape while the other was detained by the police. A search of the area led to the discovery of a bag that the arrestee had thrown, which was found to contain multiple small packets of drugs.
Further inspection of the motorcycle led to the discovery of a small scale and additional drug storage packets under the seat. The individual who was detained had a history of drug-related offenses and was subsequently taken into custody.
The Criminal Court later increased their detention period to 15 days due to the severity of the charges against them.
