The Operation Spirit of Cooperation seized 794,892 pills in the possession of three dealers in Al Ain and Ajman, Abu Dhabi Police said. The operation was executed by a professional anti-narcotics team in coordination with the Anti-Narcotics Federal Directorate General at the Ministry of Interior, the General Department of Anti-Narcotics at Dubai Police and the Anti-Narcotic Department of the Ajman Police.
Colonel Dr. Rashid Mohammad Borshid, Head of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at the Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters said that “Spirit of Cooperation” had been chosen as the name for the operation due to the cooperation, teamwork spirit and mutual fruitful coordination among all anti-narcotics entities through which the operation was executed. He continued that the suspects were closely monitored, which led to the arrest of the first two suspects (GCC nationals) in Al Ain, and the third (Arab National) in Ajman, after monitoring his suspicious activities from Dubai.
Colonel Dr. Borshid praised the team consisting of anti-narcotics staff who worked with team spirit in investigation groups. He said that the groups gathered all the information about the incident and expanded the scope of the crime scene after collecting clear physical evidence that convicted the suspects. He noted that the team succeeded in foiling the plans of the suspects; unveiling their criminal activities and arresting the suspects with the pills in their possession.
Colonel Dr. Borshid called upon the public to counter all illegal behavior and to promptly report legal violations to help the police to act quickly to ensure the community’s security. He reaffirmed the Abu Dhabi Police’s dedication to countering and significantly limiting crimes, in addition to sensing imminent danger with vigilant eyes. He praised the efforts of honest citizens who cooperate and trust in the police institution and its ability to uncover the truth, arrest criminals and hand them over to justice.
