Over 3,400 arrested for drug offences between January and October 2020, says Melaka police chief

MELAKA: A total of 3,448 people were arrested for drug-related offences from January to October, says Melaka police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Majid Mohd Ali.

He also said 195 investigation papers were opened under Section 39C of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 during the same period and that approximately RM3.4mil worth of drugs and RM1.6mil of property were confiscated for the first 10 months of the year.

DCP Abdul Majid said this at a press conference on Friday (Nov 20) when awarding certificates of appreciation to five policemen.

On the awards, he said that this was different from the traditional way of recognising crimebusters during monthly police assemblies.

“The Melaka police will instantly recognise those involved in effective crime busting efforts,” he said.

DCP Abdul Majid said those rewarded were involved in the arrest of two drug traffickers aged 22 and 23 on Nov 19.

He added that the same team was involved in the arrest of a man at a bus stop near Melaka Zoo on Oct 27 and another woman at Sungai Udang on Nov 18.
