PETALING JAYA: A doctor and pharmacist have been arrested, after police found ganja in the car they were travelling in.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the incident occurred around 10.25pm on Monday (June 29).

"Our team stopped a vehicle along Jalan PJU 1A/3, Kelana Jaya, and checked a man and a woman in the car who worked as a doctor and pharmacist respectively.

"When we checked the car, we found a plastic containing 70g of what is believed to be ganja in a bag on the driver's side of the vehicle," he said, adding that the male suspect also tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinol (cannabis).

"We arrested the suspect, who was behaving suspiciously around 7pm on Monday along Jalan 51A/224, while a patrol unit was making its crime prevention rounds there.

"We checked his bag and found several tools and metal objects believed to be used to break into houses," he said, adding that the man had been remanded for four days to help with further investigations.

ACP Nik Ezanee said the incident occurred around 8.15pm on the same day at Damansara Damai.
