In a special search operation conducted on the Sand Dune Sea area of Talaimannar on Sunday, the Sri Lanka Navy recovered over 4kgs (wet weight) of Crystal Methamphetamine, also known as ICE, adrift at sea.

The special operation was mounted by SLNS Thammanna in the North Central Naval Command in the Sand Dune Sea area. Naval personnel engaged in this operation recovered a suspicious sack adrift in the waters. The recovered sack contained drugs weighing about 04kg and 500g (wet weight) packed in four parcels.

The Navy suspects that the smugglers might have abandoned the drugs due to constant naval operations in the area. The gross street value of the drugs is estimated at over Rs. 67.5 million. The seized packages of Crystal Methamphetamine have been kept in Naval custody until they are handed over to the authorities for further legal action.
