A 53-year-old Indian passenger was arrested by customs officers last morning, with more than one kilogramme  of Methamphetamine (ice) worth Rs.10.7 million,  concealed between sarees, Customs Director and Acting Spokesman Lal Weerakoon said.  

“The suspect had declared the contraband to the customs as sarees and due to suspicious behaviour, the saree parcels were checked by the customs officers who found the Methamphetamine packed to look like a saree parcel,” he said.    Customs investigations revealed that the suspect was a frequent traveller from Chennai, Mr. Weerakoon said.  
The suspect and the Methamphetamine parcel are to be handed over to the Police Narcotics Bureau (PNB) for further investigations, he added.   The detection was made by Customs Superintendents Senaka Arawpola, K.D.R. Perera and Assistant Superintendent K.P.S. Samarasekara.   Investigations were carried out by Assistant Superintendents S.P.M.R. Silva, W.N.D.C. Welaratne, K.P.S. Samarasekara and D.M.B.C Dissanayake at BIA under the guidance of Deputy Director J.C. Murage, Saman Ranawana and Customs Additional Director General.
