The anti-drug bureau in the Bekaa arrested on Thursday four Lebanese and two Syrians on drug dealing charges, reported the National News Agency on Saturday.

It said that the security forces arrested in their possession an electrical captagon pill-producing machine.

The machine was previously used as a candy-producing machine.

The suspects were arrested during a raid on a farm in the northern Bekaa town of Younin and a garage in the Baalbek-al-Kiel region.

Due to its small size and ease of transportation, the captagon-producing machine would have been difficult to detect.

The security forces also confiscated 300 liters of amphetamines, the main component of captagon.

The cost of a liter sells for 2,500 dollars, added NNA.

Other assorted equipment used for the production of captagon pills were also discovered along with 10 kilograms of locally-produced cannabis and 50,000 packaged pills.

NNA added that the drugs were going to be smuggled to Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

Only shia take and make captagon. Bekaa also is where HA manufactures these drugs.

Klebsiella, again, it's a shia village and if you know someone familiar with bekaa then you can ask them who is behind these pills. It's no secret, so don't just throw accusations around when it's so easily refuted. This doesn't mean that others aren't criminals as well, it only means that in this particular case, the culprits happen to be shiite.

Klebsiella, we are not talking about a city, we are talking about a small village with a couple of families in it who are farmers. It's a shia village and if you don't believe me, ask around. I am sure of my statemn
