RABAT, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Moroccan authorities have arrested a Romanian woman carrying 159 kg of cannabis, official news agency MAP reported Tuesday.
The woman was caught on Monday at the border checkpoint of Ceuta, the Spanish enclave in northern Morocco, as she was heading to Spain, MAP said.
The banned substance was concealed inside a Spanish-registered car, it added.
The smuggler was remanded in custody, with the car and the seized drugs transferred to the judicial police in the city of Tetouan.
An investigation is underway to determine all possible links with international drug-trafficking networks.
Despite efforts to crack down on cannabis cultivation during the last decade, Morocco remains one of the world's largest producers, according to the UN Office on Drugs and Crime.
