EDIRNE (CIHAN)- A total of 113 kilograms of heroin, which is valued at around TL 7 million, was seized by the security forces at KapIkule Border Gate, which sits along the Turkish-Greek border, as part of
two operations conducted in the northwestern province of Edirne.

During routine vehicle inspections in the vehicles which would leave the country, police made a further investigation when sniper dogs reacted too strongly. At the end of two separate investigations, police discovered 113 kilograms of heroin which was hidden in the two semi-trailer trucks.

Drivers of the vehicles were arrested by the police and sent to jail by the court.
