Hong Kong Customs yesterday (July 2) seized about one kilogram of suspected methamphetamine with an estimated market value of about $570,000 in Jordan.

Customs officers intercepted a 36-year-old woman in an anti-narcotics operation conducted in Jordan last night. A total of 120 soap bars were found in a parcel carrying by her and the suspected methamphetamine was found being concealed in 65 of them. The woman was then arrested.

Investigation is ongoing.

Under the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, trafficking in a dangerous drug is a serious offence. The maximum penalty upon conviction is a fine of $5 million and life imprisonment.

Members of the public may report any suspected drug trafficking activities to Customs' 24-hour hotline 2545 6182 or its dedicated crime-reporting email account (crimereport@customs.gov.hk).
