The agents “made a large international drug trafficking operation fail on Wednesday and seized a record load of 31 tons and 197 kilos of cannabis resin,” the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN) said in a statement.

The operation took place in a warehouse near Tangier where the cannabis “was packaged and stuffed inside figures of fruits and vegetables whose color and size could facilitate their exit from Morocco as agricultural products,” said the same source.

A 61-year-old man with a criminal record was arrested and taken into custody “suspected of links to a criminal network active in international drug trafficking,” the DGSN said.
