The suspect, an 18-year-old whose name was not reported, was arrested for allegedly running a drug smuggling operation, The Jerusalem Post reported Saturday.
The arrest was the result of "methodical work and a successful undercover investigation by northern police, who foiled the dispersal of large amounts of drugs into the State of Israel," said Rony Atia, commander of the police's Northern District. "We will continue to work tirelessly and using all means at our disposal."
The suspect was taken to the Nazareth Magistrate's Court for a remand hearing.
Police recovered 11 pounds of heroin and 4 pounds of cocaine during the operation.
