KUALA LUMPUR: Two drug trafficking syndicates have been crippled with the arrest of six people including four Indonesians and the seizure of 82kg of ganja in separate operations.
Federal narcotics deputy director Senior Asst Comm I Datuk Mangsor Ismail said yesterday that a police team detained two Acehnese men in Jalan Pahang on June 17.
We recovered 29 compressed blocks of ganja weighing over 27kg from their Perodua Kembara.
The suspects led us to arrest another two men near the area, he said, adding that the suspects could be linked to an international drug syndicate involving Acehnese which was busted by police earlier.
SAC I Mangsor said that five days later, police seized another 52 compressed blocks of ganja from a car in Pusat Bandar Puchong. The driver was detained.
A follow-up investigation led police to arrest another man at an apartment nearby. We recovered two-and-a-half compressed blocks of ganja, he added.
All the six suspects were aged between 22 and 40. The ganja was worth RM131,000.
