The Mongolian police arrested three people on Tuesday in the middle of a criminal operation to transport a large amount of narcotics in Ulaanbaatar.
Two men and a woman aged 19-32 were detained in the Sukhbaatar district in central UB. Police officers seized methamphetamine worth around MNT 500 million (about 190,000 U.S. dollars) on the spot. The drugs had been transported through the postal service from the United States.
These latest arrests bring the number of people arrested for drug trafficking in the country so far this year to 59.
According to Mongolian law, the person who is found guilty of trafficking drugs will be punished by imprisonment of at least two years.
