Police on Sunday arrested an Israeli woman carrying nearly 2,000 pills of MDMA — commonly known as ecstasy — as she attempted to enter the country from Jordan via the Allenby Bridge crossing.

The suspect, a 38-year-old resident of Moshav Azaria, near Ramle, tipped authorities off to a 30-year-old Hebron resident, suspected to be the ring leader, who was also arrested.

A third suspect, another 30-year-old resident of Hebron, was arrested Friday carrying approximately 1,800 ecstasy pills. He was suspected to be part of the same drug ring, and his detention was extended by 11 days. 

The police reported that they were continuing their investigation into the drug ring.
