The shipment was being closely tracked since its departure from an Asian port.
Customs officers who scanned the container discovered a fake flooring which was fitted to conceal the prohibited pills.
They seized the illegal shipment of illegal amphetamine, Lyrica, Methadone, and Zinex pills, with the help of the K-9 Dog.
"We analyse information and define the risks based on different factors, and there is a high level of coordination between the intelligence department and the Jebel Ali Customs Centre. This, along with the advanced equipment available, helped thwart the illegal shipment," said Shuaib Al Suwaidi, Director of the Customs Intelligence Department. ■
