ENFORCEMENT officers seized an assortment of sex paraphernalia and fake sexual enhancement pills in the Pudu market area in Kuala Lumpur, Harian Metro reported.
A Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry spokesman said the 5pm raid took place at a second-floor unit of a three-storey shop house, which was used as a packaging centre.
A syndicate is said to have imported cheap generic versions of certain drugs and repackaged them as popular brands for distribution to traders and street peddlers around the Pudu market and areas around Chow Kit and Lorong Haji Taib.
“There is also a possibility that they are distributed to medicine shops and pharmacies,” said the spokesman.
During the raid, a woman in her 30s was seen wrapping the drugs in one of the rooms of the premises.
However, she sneaked out and escaped while the enforcers broke into an adjoining room.
The spokesman said among the drugs seized were cover versions of Viagra, Cialis, Livitra and Caverta 100.
Also seized were sex toys. The seized items, it is believed, have a street value of about RM400,000 and had been smuggled in from China.
