A TRADER selling illegal sex pills trapped a Health Ministry officer who was at his home to investigate the case, reported Harian Metro.
The suspect, 50, locked the iron-grille door of the house after the officer from the Selangor Pharmacy Enforcement Division stepped inside.
He then threatened to beat up the officer if he tried to seize the pills.
The stand-off on Wednesday ended after about an hour when the officer used his cellphone to call the police to the premises in Cheras.
“Six policemen arrived and ordered the trader to open the door,” a source familiar with the case was quoted as saying.
The trader was arrested and pills valued at RM22,000 were seized.
According to the source, the officer had posed as a buyer and had previously bought pills from the trader.
A test showed that the pills contain a substance used to treat erectile dysfunction, but the additive could reportedly cause heart attacks, said the source.
