Really not something they should be doing here
Three Saudi nationals have been jailed by the Court of First Instance.
After a tip-off, Dubai Police got a public prosecution warrant for arrest and search. A team of anti-narcotics police officers then raided the apartment the guys were staying at in Al Barsha and arrested the three of them aged 25, 22 and 19.
At the apartment:
The police found other Saudi people and three Moroccan women as well. They also found three cigarettes, suspected to contain hashish, and a bag with a suspicious substance. Plus, they seized 41.5 grams of hashish.
The urine sample tests were positive for hashish
The three men confessed to the police they took drugs and the 22-year-old said that the drugs belonged to him.
Two of them have been sentenced to four years each in prison for taking and possessing drugs, while the third has been given a three-month jail term for taking mind-affecting substances. All will be deported after completing their jail terms.
