"The suspect was arrested on Feb 15 around 5pm in a housing area in Taman Sri TImah," Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zaid Hassan said in a statement on Tuesday (Feb 16).

"Checks were conducted and a food delivery bag that the suspect surrendered held 23 packets of suspected ketum water, 36 packets of ketum leaves and one packet of wet ketum leaves.
