Cops seize 11kg of ganja, arrest four after vehicle search

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have seized more than 11kg of ganja after arresting three men and a woman along the MRR2 here.

City Narcotic Crime Investigation Department (NCID) chief Asst Comm Adnan Azizon said they stopped a Honda City there at around 2.35pm on Tuesday (Feb 16) and arrested three men and a woman aged between 20 and 23.

"We checked the vehicle and found at least 5kg of ganja and RM450 in cash.

"Based on further investigations, police went to a residential unit along Jalan Sultan Ismail at around 10pm," he said, adding that police seized another 6.04kg of ganja there.

He said urine tests of the three main suspects came back positive for Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

"Further investigations revealed one of the male suspects had a criminal record with two prior offences.

"All four suspects have been remanded to facilitate further investigations," he said, adding that the case was classified as drug trafficking.

ACP Adnan said all the suspects have been actively distributing drugs in the Klang Valley for more than three months.

"The drugs seized have an estimated street value of RM27,672 and could have supplied 11,069 drug users," he said.
