Ten kilograms of opium were discovered by the anti-drug force during a routine vehicle search in Mafraq, Jordan.

The Administration of Media Security in the directorate of General Security announced Monday that a patrol from the anti-drug force in the jurisdiction of Al-Mafraq attempted to stop a vehicle to search its contents and question its passengers, but the driver refused and continued along his path.

While driving away, one of the passengers threw a bag from the window, and then continued along their path inside a rough, desert area outside of the city.

This prompted the members of the patrol to halt their pursuit and return to the place where the bag was thrown. The bag contained ten kilograms of opium.

The Administration of Media Security added that extensive investigations are underway to determine the identities of those involve and arrest them.
