Police on Monday revealed that a recent investigation led to the arrest of six Jewish suspects who allegedly financed, designed and distributed a drink called Green Energy, which contained illegal substances.

The beverage reportedly contained illegal concentrations of gat, a leaf-like substance that produces mild euphoria.

Police believe the suspects were selling the drink at kiosks throughout the country.
