KUALA LUMPUR: They are jobless but they lead a lavish lifestyle by peddling drugs to party animals.
The police got wind of their illicit activities and foiled the latest attempt by the two men to sell an assortment of party drugs with a street value of RM163,400 in Sri Petaling here.
“We suspect their clients include those who hold private parties, rave parties and clubbers,” Brickfields district police chief Asst Comm Muhammad Azlee Abdullah told a press conference yesterday.
He said the suspects, aged 36 and 39, were waiting for prospective buyers when they were arrested in Jalan Radin Anum at 7pm on Monday.
One of them was outside a restaurant while the other was in a grey Honda Accord.
Narcotics officers found about 7,000 Erimin-5 pills and 2,880 ecstasy pills in a brown box hidden under the dashboard of the car.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the suspects – one from here and the other from Penang – would meet buyers at random locations to avoid detection.
Both have no criminal record but they tested positive for drug-taking.
It is believed the duo had been active in the Klang Valley for two years and were part of a syndicate.
They are facing the death penalty.
