The guard uncovered the packets in the man's pockets.

A man's 2-year jail term for smuggling drugs at Dubai International Airport has been upheld.

In the details, the Arab national had been passing through customs at the airport last November, as per Ittihad report.

The security guard on duty noticed strange-looking parcels stuffed into the man's pockets.

After searching him, he uncovered three frozen ground meat packages.

The guard placed the meat on the baggage x-ray conveyor belt, where he realised there were square packets also embedded within the meat.

Upon opening the meat packages, he found there was hashish and drug capsules filled with a psychotropic substance.
