GEORGE TOWN: Two policemen, a man and a woman were nabbed for holding a “drug party” at a budget hotel in Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah here.
When a state narcotics team found them, the four were high on methamphetamine, also known as ice, during the 3pm raid on Saturday.
The four were in a semi-conscious state when police stormed the room.
Initial probe revealed that the two policemen, aged 26 and 30, had been in the force for more than four years.
Penang police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Abdul Rahim Hanafi said the case had been classified under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 after they all tested positive for drugs.
He said police would not tolerate any wrongdoing by its personnel as it would tarnish the image of the force.
“The two policemen have been remanded to facilitate investigations,” SDCP Abdul Rahim said. “We have also suspended them.”
