Four nabbed and drugs worth RM3.67mil seized


KULIM: Police arrested four people, including a woman, and seized RM3.67mil worth of drugs in three separate raids in Kedah and Penang.

Federal Narcotics Crime Investigation Department director Comm Datuk Razarudin Husain said the suspects, aged between 32 and 33, were arrested in a special operation conducted by the Bukit Aman and Kedah Narcotics CID on Jan 27.

“In the one-hour simultaneous raids beginning 10.45am, we seized 11.18kg of Ecstasy, ketamine (17.8kg), Erimin 5 (20.22kg), juice drinks (20.15kg) and ‘mushroom’ drugs (410g).

“Police also confiscated RM488,400 worth of assets of the syndicate, including seven cars, a high-powered motorcycle and RM4,000, ” he said at a press conference at the Kulim police headquarters yesterday.

Comm Razarudin said the suspects, who had been active since the end of September, were believed to be involved in packaging drugs for private parties as well as the Kedah and Penang markets.

“The arrest is a follow-up to an arrest made last July. We believe they are linked to the syndicate in Selangor, ” he added.

The four suspects had been remanded for seven days to assist in the investigation under Section 39(B) of the Dangerous Drugs Act. — Bernama
