The drugs were seized Tuesday in a home in the Farkhor district, about 200 kilometers south of the capital Dushanbe, said Drug Control Agency chief Rustam Nazarov.
The house owner and another man who was staying with him were arrested, Nazarov told reporters. The men were suspected to be members of an organized group that smuggled drugs from neighboring Afghanistan, he said.
About one-third of the drugs produced in Afghanistan, the world's leading opium and heroin producer, make their way through former Soviet republics, experts say. Most of the drugs pass through impoverished Tajikistan, which shares a long, porous border with Afghanistan, according to the AP.
