RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, May 28 (UPI) -- Saudi Arabian security forces have foiled an attempt to smuggle 100 kilograms of hashish from Yemen that were concealed in the spare tire of a car.

A security source said Saturday that customs' officials at the crossing of Khadra in the province of Najran on the Saudi-Yemeni border stopped a car trying to enter the kingdom and after searching it they discovered the drugs.

"Police seized the car immediately and arrested the driver," the source said without disclosing the identity of the alleged trafficker.

Yemen and Saudi Arabia signed a security agreement last year to boost security cooperation along their common border that stretches 1,125 miles.
