KUALA LUMPUR: Around RM50,000 worth of drugs were seized after the police arrested two suspected drug pushers.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Fahmi Visuvanathan Abdullah, in a statement Friday (Oct 25), said that the two suspects were arrested on Thursday (Oct 24).

"Acting on information gathered, we arrested the two men, aged 43 and 52, in front of a shop in Jalan Robertson.

"The duo then brought the police to a car park in the same area. One of the suspects surrendered a box containing compressed drugs, which we believe to be methamphetamine. Also seized was around RM4,200 in cash, suspected to be profits from drug sales," he said.

Checks on a car showed that it had been stolen.

"The drugs seized were estimated to be worth around RM50,000 and enough to be used by 1,500 users," he said.

Further investigations showed that one of the suspects had previous records for drug related offences.

Both tested positive for drugs and have been remanded until Oct 30.
