Success story: The drugs, money and other items seized in raids on display for the media.

KAJANG: A “doctor” and a “pharmacist” who operated in the same drug syndicate were among 12 people arrested for drug distribution after a series of raids by the police.

The two were not medical practitioners but “drug mixers” who were addressed as such by clients.

“These were the names users would refer to when they wanted to buy drugs at the entertainment centres,” Bukit Aman Narcotics Crime Investigations Department (NCID) director Comm Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh told a press conference at the Kajang police headquarters yesterday.

Investigations showed that the “mixers” would be responsible for adding drugs into regular drink packets before having them distributed to various entertainment outlets within the Klang Valley.

Between Oct 10 and 11, a combined team from the federal, city and Selangor NCID departments raided nine locations across the Klang Valley.

“The operation led to the discovery of two premises that were believed to have been used for processing and mixing purposes.

“The suspects, aged between 22 and 55, have all been remanded,” he said.

“Four of them tested positive for drugs,” he said.

The drugs seized included 72kg worth of what was believed to be ketamine powder as well as 45 bottles of Vitagen which police believed had been spiked with ketamine.

It is known that the Vitagen was being sold at RM250 per bottle to drug users.

“The value of all the seized drugs is estimated to be RM3.27mil. We also seized nine vehicles, cash (around RM860,000) and jewellery worth RM2mil,” Comm Mohmad said.
