The General Administration of Criminal Investigation in Al-Marg city said that a local citizen found 323 bars of hashish, stamped with a picture of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the seaside on Saturday.

A few days ago, some citizens also found large quantities of hashish stamped with a picture of the Colombian Pablo Escobar, on the shores of the towns of Talmitha and Boutraba, in the east of Libya.

It is likely that the recurrence of this was due to the sinking of a consignment of smuggled hashish for a drug dealer.
