Some 6,000 Ecstasy pills were seized Friday during a police raid on two synagogues in Rishon Lezion's Shikun Hamizrach neighborhood.
Local police, who were tipped off about the drugs a few days ago, found 3,000 Ecstasy pills and a pistol concealed in the ceiling of a synagogue on Shivtei Yisrael Street.
An additional 3,000 pills were found in the bathroom of another synagogue located nearby.
Investigators said the drug dealers, who are still at large, apparently planned to sell the pills at a party that was scheduled to be held in the coming days.
