KUALA LUMPUR: Police have seized at least RM11mil worth of drugs after crippling a drug trafficking syndicate here.

The syndicate is believed to be using Malaysia as a transit point, smuggling in the drugs from a neighbouring country before they were sent elsewhere.

City deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Yong Lei Choo (pic) said Bukit Aman and city police Narcotic Crime Investigation Department (NCID) launched a series of raids in the Klang Valley, as well as in several states on Jan 15.

"We arrested six suspects, aged between 29 and 58, during these raids.

"We found 100.92kg of ketamin and 59.99kg of heroin base worth at least RM11mil in a car at a parking lot in the Klang Valley during the raids," she told reporters at the Dang Wangi police headquarters on Wednesday (Jan 20).
