PETALING JAYA: Police have arrested a man for carrying a concealed knife and drugs at a movement control order (MCO) roadblock here.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the incident occurred at around 8pm Monday (April 6).

"Our personnel were conducting checks at the MCO roadblock at Persiaran Surian when they came across a man on a motorcycle.

"We spoke to the man and checked him and found a knife on him and two packets containing a substance believed to be syabu," he said when contacted Tuesday (April 7).

He said further checks on the motorcycle revealed a metal rod.

"We will remand the suspect to help with further investigations," he said.

ACP Nik Ezanee said police also arrested nine others for defying the MCO at various locations in the district.

"Among the nine arrested included a 27-year-old woman from Sierra Leone at the roadblock along the Sprint Highway after she failed to give us a valid reason for going outside at around 9.30pm Monday.

"We also arrested two men aged 29 and 35 for loitering and drinking alcohol at the parking lot of an apartment building at Damansara Damai at around 11.15pm.

"We arrested another man for attempting to flee police checks along Jalan PJS10/11 Taman Seri Subang at around 5.10am Tuesday," he said.

ACP Nik Ezanee urged the public to remain indoors and comply with the MCO.

"Defying it will lead us to make arrests and produce those arrested in court to face legal action," he said.
