KUALA LUMPUR: The Dang Wangi narcotics department busted two drug dealers along Jalan Sungai Besi for possessing heroin said to be worth RM112,000.
District OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Ahmad said a special task force formed to stamp out drug-related offences in the area arrested the two men at 8.30pm on Aug 1.
“The suspects then led the police to a shoplot along Jalan Cheras where 2,902g of heroin was found stashed in a room,” said ACP Zainuddin, who added that the men were still in police custody in a case that is being investigated under Section 39b of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
In an unrelated case, the police detained three men aged between 18 and 25 for allegedly carrying out a series of armed robberies around the district.
ACP Zainuddin said the men were arrested in a budget hotel along Jalan Tun H.S. Lee at around 7.45pm on July 23.
“Initial investigations revealed that the trio are responsible for more than 10 armed robberies. We found weapons in their hotel room, including knives and machetes, and recovered RM12,000 worth of stolen loot from the room,” he added.
ACP Zainuddin said the men were still under police custody.
“We are tracking down their accomplices who we believe are still in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.”
The case is being investigated under Section 7(1) of the Corrosive, Explosive and Dangerous Weapons Act 1958.
