70-year-old woman caught with 8.3kg of drugs at Dubai airport

A 70-year-old woman has been caught at Dubai International Airport carrying 8.3kg of drugs.

The Central American woman was caught by customs officials with over 8kg of crystal meth in her suitcase.

The drugs were carefully wrapped in carbon paper and sealed into the corners of her suitcase.

The woman had asked her airline to deliver her bags to her accommodation while she was transiting on her way to another country.

But customs officials found the drugs during a search and arrested the woman.

Ibrahim Al Kamali, Director of the Passenger Operations Department at Dubai Customs, said that officials are trained to foil smuggling attempts in accordance with international best practices.

5 year old boy honoured by Dubai Police after returning AED4,000

Dubai Police have officially honoured a five-year-old boy in Dubai after he handed in AED4,000 he’d found in cash.

Honesty was the only thing on Nigel Ners’ mind when he found the cash as his first instinct was to hand it in to the nearest Dubai Police station in Al Qusais.

The Philipino boy was given an official certificate of appreciation and Brigadier Abdulhalim Muhammad Al Hashmi, Director of Al Qusais Police Station praised the honest child for his honesty.
