The customs officers had apprehended them, near Pezenas, each driving a vehicle. A dog had allowed the discovery of narcotics, hidden in the body and packaged in sachets. They have since been in pre-trial detention.
The two men were also ordered to pay a fine of 10,500 euros jointly and severally. Their two vehicles were also confiscated.
