BUKIT MERTAJAM (Bernama): Two "drug parties" were busted on Monday (June 24) when the Seberang Perai Tengah police raided two separate premises and detained 19 individuals, four of whom were minors.

Seberang Perai Tengah (SPT) district police chief ACP Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abdul Hamid said  the four teenagers arrested in a raid in a hotel room here at 10pm were a boy and three girls aged between 15 and 17.

"Only one of these teenagers is a girl who is still in school and is a Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia candidate, while the others are not attending school," he said.

The teenagers were among the 10 arrested during the raid, and one of them was believed to have been the organiser of the party and supplier of the drugs.

"The adults arrested were between the ages of 19 and 31 and all were positive for drugs. 0.4 grams of ketamine were also found on the floor in the room," he said.

ACP Nik Ros Azhan said in an earlier raid on a double storey terrace house at Taman Bukit Minyak at around 5pm on Monday, the police arrested nine individuals, two of them women, who were involved in another drug party.

"The examination on those between the ages of 23 and 40 found that they all tested positive for syabu and they had made the home belonging to one of the detainees as a ‘port’ since the beginning of the month," he said.

He said after inspecting the house, the police seized a package containing 6.58g of syabu, an ecstasy pill, a modified glass bottle believed to be used for smoking and a cigarette lighter.

ACP Nik Ros Azhan said all of them tested positive for drugs and five of the arrested men had two to 19 past records of drug-related crimes. - Bernama
