Jerusalem police announced Thursday that they had busted a cocaine lab operating out of an apartment in the suburban community of Tsur Hadassah. Two suspects were arrested in the Tuesday drug bust, including a tourist from Peru, who was flown into Israel to process the drug, and a Jerusalem resident identified as Nissim Shalush. The two men have been remanded in custody by a Jerusalem court for seven days. Police uncovered 15 kilograms of cocaine at the apartment.
