Students among drug ring members held in raids

KUANTAN: A secondary school student was among the members of a drug syndicate busted by the police for peddling Yaba pills to teenagers in Kuantan.

Pahang deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Jamaluddin Abd Majid said the eight male and two female suspects, aged between 17 and 26, were all arrested during an operation held early Tuesday morning.

“Up to 7,971 Yaba pills, worth RM278,985, were seized during the raid. We caught the first suspect at about 1.30am in Kg Selamat and seized 1,400 pills.

“Following that, he led the police to a house in Indera Mahkota 2 where we arrested three men and a woman in her early 20s and seized another 600 pills,” said DCP Jama­­l­uddin, adding that the female suspect was a student at a private college here.

He added that the police later stopped a Suzuki Swift in Taman Padang Permai, Sungai Lembing, at about 2.30am and picked up the other syndicate members.

“One of the male suspects arrested in the second raid is a student at a private college and the other female suspect is a student at a secondary school in Pekan. They had 2,000 pills with them.

“The police raided their house and found another 3,971 pills,” said DCP Jamaluddin.

He said all 10 suspects tested negative for drug use and the case was being investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act.
