The suspicious vessel was located by helicopter from French frigate FS Jean Bart, Britain’s Royal Navy said. A team from the French ship then boarded and secured the dhow before conducting an initial investigation.

Naval and marine forces from British frigate HMS Montrose then took over the search of the vessel, and located and seized a large number of packages containing the drugs.

Britain’s Royal Navy reported that 95 kilogrammes of heroin and 75 kilogrammes of crystal methamphetamine, with an estimated street value of $1 million, were seized from the dhow.
