TIRANA, Aug. 6 – Montenegrin police and customs officials said on Tuesday they seized 18 kg of drugs in a car with Albanian license plates at the Sukubina-Muriqan border crossing. According to a joint announcement by the Police Directorate and the Taxation Department of Montenegro, the person D.K. (26 years old) from Shkodra, who was driving a Mercedes Benz, was stopped, allegedly attempting to smuggle marijuana from Albania to Montenegro.

The drugs were found in 35 packages and were hidden in different parts of the car.
