SHAH ALAM: A few drug operations were busted when police seized various drugs worth RM5.46mil in four separate raids around Selangor.

State deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said police arrested eight people, aged 23 to 49, who are also suspected of turning living quarters into drug labs.

“We found various chemicals and tools which we believe were used to make the drugs, ” he said.

Police first arrested five people, including two foreigners, at a semi-detached house in Damansara Perdana, Petaling Jaya, on July 10 at around 2.45pm.

The five were found with various drugs, including Ecstacy, Ketamine, MDMA powder and Erimin 5 pills, as well as tools and ingredients to make drugs.

Another two people were arrested in a house opposite to the one where police made their first arrest.

The seven are believed to belong to the same syndicate and supplied drug users in the Klang Valley.

Five of the suspected syndicate members also tested positive for drugs.

Separately, DCP Arjunaidi said police also arrested a 30-year-old man at a hotel room in Kajang on the same day at 9.30pm and seized 180g of heroin.

The suspect later led police to a service apartment in Subang Jaya where they found 14 packages believed to contain heroin, syabu and caffeine.

Police also found a pistol and several tools believed to be used to make drugs at the location.

DCP Arjunaidi said all the suspects have been remanded until July 17 and will be investigated for drug trafficking under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

“The other suspect who was found with a pistol will also be investigated under the Arms Act 1960 for possessing a firearm, ” he said.

Other items seized in the raids include three cars and RM373 in cash.
