KUALA LUMPUR: Police confiscated RM100,000 worth of fireworks and three parang during a raid at a store near a morning market along Jalan Jering.
The five-man raiding party, led by Pandamaran police station chief Insp Mohd Rushdam Mohd Yusoff, surrounded the premises at 11.45pm on Wednesday and broke through the door after repeated calls and knocks went unanswered.
“The store was vacant. Officers found boxes filled with firecrackers of different kinds, which we believed was to be sold for the Chinese New Year,” said South Klang OCPD ACP Kamarul Mamat.
“We are working with the Klang Municipal Council (MPK) to ascertain the identity of the owners of the house as it was rented out by the MPK.”
He said the firecrackers were smuggled into the country about a week ago.
In Tanah Merah, Kelantan police seized a container carrying 222 boxes of illegal fireworks worth RM300,000 at a roadblock in Jalan Padang Siam here on Wednesday.
District OCPD Deputy Supt of Police Abdul Aziz Mahmud said there were 11 types of fireworks found in the container.
“The suspect had driven the lorry container from Kuala Lumpur. He is believed to be doing part-time work to carry the contraband to be distributed in Ipoh,” he added.
