Kedah police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Zamri Yahya said they found a black Norinco pistol with 9mm Luger and S&B bullets in the suspect’s vehicle at a car park around 3.15pm on Tuesday.

“The driver, aged 40, has previous records for firearms possession while his accomplice, in his 20s, is wanted for a cheating case,” he told reporters here yesterday..

SDCP Zamri said they also seized 104g of syabu, 116g heroin, 17 Erimin 5 pills and 3 ecstasy pills worth more than RM30,000 in one suspect’s bag.
