10 suspects were arrested this month for smuggling drugs concealed in Star Wars and Minions dolls from the US into Israel. Inside the dolls, which were mailed to Israel, were amphetamines worth millions of shekels.

It is suspected that the packages were sent to one of the suspects. When the packages arrived in Israel, another suspect, who works for a mail delivery company, made sure to pass them along to the intended recipient, who gave them to another suspect. This is how the packages were delivered to the head of the drug smuggling network. Three additional suspects were in charge of distributing the drugs among the Filipino population in Israel.

The Israel Police was able to locate three packages, which were sent to addresses in Tel Aviv and Ramat HaSharon. In addition, police were able to locate the recipients of the packages and the rest of the drug smuggling network responsible for bringing the amphetamines into Israel and selling them. After investigators gathered enough evidence, they were arrested.
