A totem of the Egyptian King Tutankhamun, along with 4 kilograms of Marijuana have been confiscated in the Yayladagi district of Hatay. It has been speculated that the totem (which was smuggled from Syria) has historical value.
The police had been informed that some historical artifacts were going to be smuggled from Syria into Turkey. The subsequent investigation resulted in a police operation, during which the totem of Tutankhamun was discovered in a car along with 4 kilograms of Marijuana. The 5 suspects (Syrian citizens) that were in the car at the time were detained, and the investigation is ongoing.
