KL cops bust international drug syndicate

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have uncovered an international drug syndicate using Malaysia as a springboard to smuggle ketamine and heroin across the region.

The syndicate, which is believed to have been operating since October last year, smuggled in the drugs via the southern gateway before transferring them to a northern state via the sea and sending them abroad.

The syndicate’s activities were uncovered last Friday when police found a car at an undisclosed location in the Klang Valley with ketamine and heroin base worth RM11mil.

City deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Yong Lei Choo said in a joint operation between Bukit Aman and the city police’s Narcotic Crime Investigation Department (NCID), they carried out a series of raids in the Klang Valley and other states last Friday.

“We arrested six suspects and seized 100.92kg of ketamine and 59.99kg of heroin base, ” she said yesterday.
