Brazen act: The sister and another relative being taken away by a policewoman for urine tests after the former was suspected of passing drugs to a family member in the courthouse.

GEORGE TOWN: The younger sister of a man about to be remanded landed in trouble with the law when she allegedly tried to pass him drugs at the Penang courthouse.

The 32-year-old woman is suspected of trying to give her brother a plastic bag containing heroin and cannabis when he was brought to court to be remanded in connection with a drug trafficking case.

A police source said she was caught red-handed with another female relative at 10.30am yesterday.

The two women caused a commotion when they were confined in a police truck while waiting for urine test results.

They sobbed and pleaded with the police for their freedom while a third woman, in her 60s, was seen crying outside the truck and making phone calls.

The sister’s test came up positive for substance abuse.

“We have detained her for possession and using drugs. She will be remanded pending further investigation,” he said.

It was learnt that the other woman, in her 30s, was later released.
