On February 23, 2018, the SBS Coastal Guard technical-observation post in Astara spotted an unidentified boat cross the sea border and return shortly after.

 

During inspection, packages of 1,325 grams of marijuana, 560 grams of heroin and 80 grams of heroin-like crystal substance were found tied to an anchor.

 

An investigation into the case is ongoing.
