KUALA LUMPUR: Police detained a brother and sister, who are believed to be drug distributors, after they recovered 2,000 Ecstasy pills from the duo. 

The suspects, a 24-year-old vegetable seller and his 28-year-old unemployed sister, have been remanded to help police in their investigations.  

City deputy police chief Senior Asst Comm I Datuk Ahmad Bahrin Idrus said a narcotics team from the city police headquarters, acting on a tip-off raided a condominium unit in Taman Tun Dr Ismail last Friday and found the Ecstasy pills.  

Meanwhile, three policemen were picked up from their office here for allegedly taking bribes from two drug pushers. 

The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) officers arrested the trio on Wednesday after one of them had “collected some settlement money” from the pushers. 

A source said the plainclothes policemen had detained two drug pushers at the San Peng area here late on Monday while on their rounds. 

He added that the pushers agreed to give the trio RM5,000 to release them.  

The pushers paid RM3,000 and asked the policemen to collect the balance two days later. 

The pushers, however, later lodged a report with the ACA office here.
