Police have arrested two suspects adjacent to the Murunkan Police Station for the possession of more than 10kg of the narcotic methamphetamine or ICE.
The arrest was conducted last night when Police received a tip off that a consignment was being transported in a lorry, and proceeded to inspect vehicles at a checkpoint.
However, officers were forced to pursue and inspect a lorry that did not heed Police orders to stop.
The 30 and 42 year old suspects are residents of Vavuniya.
They will be produced before the Mannar Magistrates Court today.
