A total of 25.2 kg (55.6 lbs) of heroin has been seized in a joint operation by police and the Federal Security Service in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg, a police source said on Tuesday.

During the operation on Monday, police found the drugs stashed in vegetable sacks in two trucks traveling from Tajikistan in Central Asia. Police arrested three Tajiks.

Russia's Urals region is a major transit point for heroin from Afghanistan. Most of the drugs are sold in Moscow and St. Petersburg and other large Russian cities, or shipped on to Europe.

According to the Federal Drug Control Service, Afghan heroin has a street value of up to $70,000 per kilogram in Russia.
