IPOH: A Perak Tengah District Council employee and his lover have been arrested and 1kg of ganja worth some RM100,000 seized from them.
Perak Tengah OCPD Supt Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said the 35-year-old suspect and his 34-year-old girlfriend were arrested in a car on Sunday night.
Both suspects, believed to be part of a trafficking syndicate, were arrested after police conducted a surprise check on the car which was parked near a curb in Parit.
“We believe that both suspects have been actively distributing drugs the past one year in Seri Iskandar and Tanjung Belanja.
“Both suspects tested positive for ganja. The male suspect has a criminal record related to drugs in 2005,” Supt Mohamad Zainal told reporters on Monday.
Both suspects have been remanded for seven days from Monday.
