According to the PJ, the heroin was transported by the arrested man, 28 years old from an African country hidden within the structure of a suitcase.

 

The Judiciary Police said that if the drug reached illicit distribution channels, it would be enough for at least 37,000 individual doses, worth €1.1 million.

 

The arrest, according to the PJ, occurred during regular inspections of passengers from countries considered to be a risk, to prevent the introduction of drugs in Portugal and other European countries through international airports.
