Turkish customs officers seized 177 kilograms (390 pounds) of marijuana in an anti-narcotics operation at the Greek border, the country’s Trade Ministry said Thursday.

In a written statement, the ministry said authorities found the drugs in a truck entering from Greece at the Ipsala border gate in the northwestern Edirne province.

Customs enforcement squads uncovered the contraband in 320 packages hidden in the vehicle using a sniffer dog, it added.

Further investigation is to be pursued regarding the incident.
