MALACCA: Police have confiscated 14 packets of drugs believed to be heroin worth RM150,000 during raids at two separate locations.

State police chief Datuk Ramli Din said his men detained a 35-year-old suspect in the first raid at Taman Bukit Serindit here, recently.

“We confiscated six plastic packets believed to be heroin weighing 2.74kg in a car,” he said during a press conference on Wednesday.

DCP Ramli said police also found the man having in his possession an air gun when a check was conducted at his rented home.

He said in a follow-up raid police found a bag containing the remaining eight packets weighing 3.6kg of substance also believed to be heroin at a hotel entrance here.

DCP Ramli said police are tracking down the suspects who had fled during the second raid.

He added that the suspect will be charged under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drug Act 1952 which carries a mandatory death sentence and Section 8 of the Firearm Act 1960 on Thursday.

In a separate development, DCP Ramli said 10 individuals including an ex-lecturer were detained to facilitate investigation into a car cloning syndicate.

He said the 28-year-old ex-lecturer was detained at his bungalow at Taman Poaya Rumput Pedana in an ambush, a few days ago.

DCP Ramli said police have detained the other nine, aged between 20 to 50 years, who are believed to be part of the syndicate in separate operations since Sept 3.

“Several counterfeit documents including duplicated vehicle registration grants were seized from the suspects,” he said.
