Both operations stemmed from intel reports received on drug smuggling attempts.

A 29-year-old Maldivian man was arrested in connection with the case.

The operation in Velidhoo island was carried out on June 7.

During the operation officers raided a few public spaces on the island and confiscated 433 rubber packets, three small packets and an empty film cannister filled with suspected narcotics.

No arrests have been made in connection with the drugs confiscated in Velidhoo island yet.

However, further investigations are currently underway in connection with both cases.
