Turkey seizes 1.5 tons of drugs hidden among soybeans

Turkish customs seized 1.5 tons of drugs in an anti-drug operation at the Greek border, the country's Trade Ministry said.

According to the ministry, guards found the hashish in a tractor-trailer transporting soybeans at the Ipsala border gate in the northwestern Edirne province.

Acting on a tip, the squads discovered the drugs in 152 sacks - 10 kilograms each - hidden among the sacks filled with soybeans, the ministry added.

It has been the largest ever drug bust that Turkey has made in a single operation at the border gates, Anadolu Agency reported.

The driver of the tractor-trailer and two others thought to be related to the incident were arrested.
