The search of a truck at the entrance of the city of Guelmim led to the seizure of 3.1 tons of cannabis resin and the arrest of the driver, national police said in a statement, adding that three other suspects were arrested on board two 4*4 vehicles not far from the scene.

Additional search operations carried out by security services at a warehouse in the region of Taghjijt, 80 km from Tata, led to the seizure of an additional quantity of 3.3 tons of the same drug, the source pointed out.
