Zahle Prison Guards Foil Hashish Smuggling Attempt

Guards at the prison of Zahle in the Bekaa seized on Tuesday a large quantity of hashish and narcotic pills hidden in three kilograms of meat pastries.

28-year-old J. K. tried to smuggle 116 pills stashed in the pastries, a communique issued by the Internal Security Forces said.

The visitor, who was carrying them, was detained and will be questioned to reveal the source of the hashish and the people behind the incident.

In June, security forces thwarted an attempt by a man to deliver a quantity of hashish hidden inside apricots to an inmate at the same prison.
