Should it be "traffic in" instead?

They are alleged to have trafficked more than 9.6kg of methamphetamine and possessed 666g of ketamine.

Should it be “trafficked in” instead?

Thanks.

I would not use ‘trafficked in’ with a specified amount.
It might be OK with an unstated amount, but is probably better without ‘in’.
I also prefer “sold” when used with a specific amount.

They sold more than 9.6kg of methamphetamine…
They trafficked methamphetamine…
They trafficked in methamphetamine…
