Drug trafficking: Cops nab college student, Indonesian man

KUALA LUMPUR, March 31 — Police have crippled two syndicates trafficking various types of drugs worth RM213,000 in the Klang Valley following the arrest of two men, including a foreigner, on March 25 and March 27.

Acting Kuala Lumpur Police chief Datuk Yahaya Othman said that in the first raid in Jalan 9 here on March 25, police arrested a 19-year-old private college student and seized six kg of brownies containing cannabis worth RM21,000.

He said the suspect, who has no criminal record, is believed to have been actively selling the brownies for the past three months and police are still investigating where he obtained the cannabis from.

“In the second raid in Subang Jaya, Selangor on March 27, police arrested an Indonesian man and seized 56kg of drugs buried one metre underground at an idle land valued at an estimated RM166,000.

“The role of the 31-year-old suspect, who tested positive for methamphetamine, is to safeguard the drug supply. Also seized was 1kg of syabu worth RM26,000,” Yahaya said in a statement today.

The total amount of drugs seized could have been supplied to 126,000 drug users.

He said the suspects have been remanded for seven days from the date of arrest under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 and police are tracking down other syndicate members.
