Dubai Customs found over 4 kg of drugs carefully hidden inside car parts, which were stashed inside a secret compartment of a traveller's suitcase.

Dubai Customs posted a picture of the drugs on social media that showed narcotic herb stuffed around the inside of car air filers in a bid to avoid detection. 

The post stated: "Officers were able to detect an attempt by an African traveler coming to the UAE to smuggle 4.25 kilograms of the narcotic substance which was distributed in a professional manner inside the car engine filter."

In a follow up post Dubai Customs wrote: "The bag was subjected to a careful inspection after it was suspected, and it was revealed that there was density inside it, which necessitated a careful examination, which revealed the presence of the narcotic herb..."

Dubai Police are now dealing with the matter.
