He added that drug dealers were now using advanced techniques to evade arrest causing serious concern for authorities.
The official said that drug dealers no longer relied on direct contact for movement of drugs, but instead hid the drugs in places - guiding customers to the locations, online.
Elaborating on the illegal drug trade, AlShehi said the operation was being operated from outside the country as they don't have to arrange a meeting between customers and sellers.
Smuggling drugs is a serious offence as per UAE law and a violation of human rights as it endangers people's health.
