YEKATERINBURG, February 16 (Itar-Tass) — Police in Yekaterinburg detained a native of Tajikistan who had 12.5 kilograms of heroin, the press service of the department of the Federal Security Service for the Sverdlovsk region told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The man purchased the narcotic on the Russian-Kazakh border for sale in the territory of Middle Urals.
"Heroin was imported from Afghanistan, according to the stamps on the parcels containing the drug. FSB experts noted a high concentration of confiscated heroin, which would have enabled drug dealers to dilute it in the ratio of 1 to 10. The drug mule was placed under arrest," the press service said.
