A Jordanian expat has been sentenced to 10 years of rigorous imprisonment and a fine of QR200, 000 has been imposed on him for indulging in the illegal trade of narcotic drugs. The Criminal Court also directed authorities to deport him upon serving his sentence.
The man was reportedly involved in the trading of Hashish and Methamphetamine, according to local Arabic daily Arrayah.
Interestingly, the drug dealer was busted after he attempted to sell the illegal drugs to an undercover law enforcement officer for an amount of QR1500. After getting the due clearance from seniors to lay a trap for the dealer, the source agreed to buy the illegal drugs from the dealer at a mutually agreed place in Al-Sadd. The defendant picked up the undercover officer in his car and drove around the area to make sure he does not have a tail.
Once convinced he handed the drugs to the officer in return of money and dropped him back at the spot where he had picked him from.
Subsequently, the police burst out from the shadows and caught the dealer. Police officials after conducting a search of the convicted man’s vehicle recovered more amounts of the prohibited drugs. The Jordanian confessed of his involvement in drug trade upon interrogation.
