Two arrested in Klang, house used for storing drugs raided

KLANG: A house in Persiaran Seri Junjung in Port Klang here, which was used to store drugs, was raided by the police.

South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Shamsul Amar Ramli said the house was raided on Tuesday (Jan 5) shortly after two men were detained in Telok Gong, Klang, on the same day.

"Checks on the suspects revealed 455g of heroin.

"Further investigations then led police to the house and the raiding team discovered 1.8kg of heroin as well as a pistol and a magazine," he told a press conference at the South Klang police headquarters on Thursday (Jan 7).

ACP Shamsul Amar said the drugs, worth about RM20,000, were believed to cater to those in Klang.

"Investigations revealed the suspects had been active since late 2019.

"We are still investigating the source of the drug supply and whether the suspects are involved in other crimes," he added.

Both suspects have been remanded until Jan 12, he said.

In an unrelated case, a 33-year-old man was detained in Bandar Botanik here on Thursday and police also seized 256.18g of syabu worth RM25,000, ACP Shamsul Amar said.

"We will step up operations against drug traffickers in the district," he said.
