Police seizes one ton of drug precursor in northwest Iran

Mahabad, Dec 25, IRNA – Iranian police officers discovered one ton of meth precursor from narcotics smugglers in northwestern Iran, Mahabad police commander said.

“Police officers stopped a suspicious car and seized the drug consignment,” Colonel Reza Zahirian told the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Monday.

“Three smugglers were arrested and their case was sent to court,” he added.

Drug precursors are chemicals that are primarily used for the legitimate production of a wide range of products, like pharmaceuticals, perfumes, plastics, cosmetics, etc. However, they can also be misused for the illicit manufacture of drugs such as methamphetamines, heroin or cocaine.
