Turkish security forces confiscated more than 80 kilograms (180 pounds) of hashish during separate operations in central Turkey on Monday, according to a police source.
The operations were carried out after capital Ankara's counter-narcotics police force received an anonymous tip about distribution of drugs.
Police followed a suspect and carried out an operation against the drug dealers.
A suspect was also detained in the operation when he tried to make a run for it. A total of 80 kilograms (180 pounds) of hashish was confiscated from this operation alone, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.
Meanwhile, in another raid, a Kayseri provincial police department's anti-narcotics police force stopped a bus, and seized 2.8 kilograms of hashish from a woman who had wrapped the drugs around her body with packaging tape. She was arrested.
