Acting on tip-off, gendarmerie teams launched separate operations against drug traffickers in Ercis and Ozalp towns of the eastern province of Van.

Counter narcotic teams confiscated 175 kg of hashish in hidden compartments of a truck in Ercis by the help of sniffer dogs, and they found 25 kg hashish buried in the ground in the garden of a house in Ozalp. Teams also found a Kalashnikov rifle buried with hashish packs.
