Nissim Alperon, brother of the late underworld kingpin Yaakov Alperon, was arrested on Monday night in Givataim on suspicion of ferrying dozens of ecstasy pills on his moped, police said Tuesday.
Apleron denied the suspicions, telling officers from Tel Aviv Police's Central Unit that the suspected drugs were merely peppermint pills.
The pills have been sent to a forensics lab at police headquarters in Jerusalem for analysis.
