Filipino Caught With 4.31 Kilos of "Shabu" in Jeddah, KSA

Jeddah, KSA - A Filipino and a Pakistani were arrested after an entrapment operation here last August 26, Saturday. The Ministry of Interior said the men were under surveillance for a while when they were caught.  The drug cell managed to smuggle a large quantity of the crude drug “shabu” (Methamphetamine hydrochloride) and traffic it in Jeddah.  The two were apprehended with 4.31 kg of crude “shabu” in their possession according to a report by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).  The security authorities have been monitoring the attempts of various criminal networks taking advantage of the Haj season to smuggle and traffic drugs in the Kingdom. Saudi Arabia receives a huge influx of pilgrims coming into the Kingdom to perform the Hajj - the annual pilgrimage for Muslims. "Advertisements" The yet unnamed Filipino is facing a harsh penalty if proven guilty for possession and distribution of illegal drugs. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is strict in enforcing the death penalty to drug traffickers. A murderer has a better chance of having a death penalty sentence reduced than that of a drug trafficker.  Saudi Arabia executes drug traffickers by beheading. This is done in public, and the condemned person is usually only informed when on the day before his execution.   "Sponsored Links" In 2016, Amnesty International reported at least 154 executions, implying that it believes that more executions were carried out. At least 71 people have been executed in Saudi Arabia since the start of 2017, including 40 in the last four weeks alone - more than one execution per day.

Wrap Your Baggages to and from the Philippines?

Please share this very important message especially to our fellow OFWs going home for vacation or going back here or anywhere in the Middle East 
We have heard different stories from OFWs who are travelling for vacation, or returning after annual vacation complained about their baggages being ripped, some valuables were stolen, or worst, some were arrested for allegedly carrying dangerous drugs or prohibited items like bullets in NAIA which are often placed by syndicates and gangs in order to extort money or to traffic illegal drugs. 
The following are some of the things you can do to protect yourself from being a victim of theft and 

If you are buying new luggage bags, you can opt for PC (polycarbonate) bags or hard shell bag. The material of these kind of bags are difficult to rip off with knife, unlike the luggage bags made of canvass or fabric. Shell bags that have secure locks instead of zippers are also a much better choice .

 Shell bags that have secure locks instead of zippers are also a much better choice . 
Watch this video how easily they can tamper a zipped luggage although it is already locked. 





To avoid this from happening, and ending up with  ripped or lost baggage items, we recommend to you to have it wrapped with cling film or plastic wrap. Here in Saudi Arabia, there are service stations that does plastic wrapping with SAR 20 charge for each baggage. In return, you get added security that your bags, luggage and boxes are free of scratches or damages, and the content are safer not to be opened by someone at the airport. In Saudi Arabia and Middle East airports you can find many kiosk or service stations for baggage wrapping  at the departure areas. If there is none in your area, you can buy a roll of CLING FILM or clear plastic wrap that is available from the grocery section and wrap it around the bags, or boxes several times to seal and protect your luggage from hands of thieves, drug syndicates or gangs who might either take items from your bag or place prohibited items that could land you in jail. 


If you are going back to your host country from the Philippines, it is a must, and we highly recommend that you wrap your baggages and plead for everybody to share this recommendation because this is important, and vital for the safety of our love ones travelling abroad.  For SR 10, we were able to buy a roll of cling wrap, enough to cover 3 luggages. 
Many international airports are also offering this service like Secure Wrap in many airports in the USA.

We have heard different stories from OFWs who are travelling for vacation, or returning after annual vacation regarding their baggages being ripped, some valuables were stolen, or worst, some were arrested for allegedly carrying dangerous drugs or prohibited items like bullets in NAIA which are often placed by syndicates and gangs in order to extort money or to traffic illegal drugs. 

The following are some of the things you can do to protect yourself from being a victim of theft and syndicates. 

I. Choose Hard Shell Bags With Secure Locks: 
If you are buying new luggage bags, you can opt for PC (polycarbonate) bags or hard shell bag. The material of these kind of bags are difficult to rip off with knife, unlike the luggage bags made of canvass or fabric. 


Shell bags that have secure locks instead of zippers are also a much better choice .


The video below shows how easy it is for anyone to tamper zipped luggage.


II. Cling Wrap Your Luggage
No matter what kind of suitcase you have, either it is hard shell or canvass, the best thing you can do to secure it is have it wrapped with plastic in the airport.

Here in Saudi Arabia, there are service stations or kiosk that does plastic wrapping with SAR 20 charge for each baggage. By doing this your belongings could be protected from scratches or damages while transporting them, and what's most important is that it cannot be easily opened or tampered by thieves and syndicates at the airport.

In Saudi Arabia and Middle East airports,  kiosk or service stations for baggage wrapping can be found easily at the departure areas. If there is none in your area, you can buy a roll of CLING FILM or clear plastic wrap that is available from the grocery section and wrap it around the bags, or boxes several times to seal and protect your luggage from hands of thieves, drug syndicates or gangs who might either take items from your bag or place prohibited items that could land you in jail.
