More than three kilogrammes of heroin (brown sugar) worth Rs.36 million was seized by the Maradana Police at a garbage dump in Captains Garden, D. R Wijewardena Mawatha today.  

Police said the stash weighing 3.6 Kg was found inside two tulip bags and was believed to be ready for transportation.

The raid was conducted following information received to the Maradana Police station.

OIC of the Maradana Police Sarath Perea said the stash was hidden at the location as the drug dealers believed it would remain unnoticed.
