BEIRUT: A Saudi prince and four others were detained on Monday in Lebanon in the largest drug bust in the history of the Beirut airport, a security source said.
Saudi prince Abdel Mohsen Bin Walid Bin Abdulaziz and four others were detained by airport security while allegedly “attempting to smuggle about two tons of Captagon pills and some cocaine,” a security source told AFP.
“The smuggling operation is the largest one that has been foiled through the Beirut International Airport,” the source said on condition of anonymity.
Captagon is the brand name for the amphetamine phenethylline, a synthetic stimulant. The banned drug is consumed mainly in the Middle East and has reportedly been widely used by fighters in Syria.
The security source said the drugs had been packed into cases that were waiting to be loaded onto a private plane that was headed to Saudi Arabia.
The five Saudi citizens were still in the airport and would be questioned by Lebanon’s customs authority, the source added.
In April 2014, security forces foiled an attempt to smuggle 15 million capsules of Captagon hidden in shipping containers full of corn from Beirut’s port.
Lebanon’s state news agency also reported Monday’s drug bust, saying the private plane was to head to Riyadh and was carrying 40 suitcases full of Captagon.
Saudi Arabia’s large royal family has had past run-ins with authorities in various countries.
Late last month, a Saudi prince was arrested in Los Angeles for allegedly trying to force a woman to perform oral sex on him at a Beverly Hills mansion.
But authorities decided not to pursue the charge, citing a lack of evidence.
In 2013, a Saudi princess was accused in Los Angeles of enslaving a Kenyan woman as a housemaid, but the charges were also eventually dropped.

Can you even imagine the title of “Prince” given to you.
This royalty sht has to stop.
Princes of darkness should be their title.
The Saudis aka saudomites need to go down with the jews.
They are both related brothers. Look at the hook noses.
Fricking parasites preying on the rest of us.
Playing us like silly btches…
Just another left right paradigm to fool the masses.
Just like Demon crats and Re Pubic lickins.
Divide and conquer… and then you can keep your royalty.
I hope God gives them all anal cancer!
When I think of the Saudi’s the first thing that comes to my mind is:
“Women/White slave sex traffickers. ”
Along with their hook nose Jew brothers!
Saudi’s are pigs, worst than a god-damned joo, and that’s a hurdle so low, only a f’n snake could crawl under.
They ARE jews, Millard.
It’s your turn to tell them.
“But authorities decided not to pursue the charge, citing a lack of evidence.”
and thats what will probably happen with this too
“… lack of evidence…”
He was d#ckless.
“… the private plane was to head to Riyadh and was carrying 40 suitcases full of Captagon.”
Strictly for personal use, no doubt.
These are the tablets that are fueling the war in Syria.
