Customs officials seized Thursday 1,943 MDMA or ecstasy pills concealed inside a wireless speaker posted from Belgium.
The party drugs were found inside the package when it was opened at the post office in the presence of the owner, customs said. The drugs weighed 1,105 grammes.
The recipient was arrested and a police investigation is under way.
There were 68 seizures from postal packages in 2018, including 1.74kg of drugs concealed in parcels during March and April last year.
In October 2017, 500 ecstasy tablets were confiscated from a parcel sent to Addu City from the Netherlands. Customs said it was one of the largest ‘party drug’ haul of its kind to date in the Maldives.
