KUALA LUMPUR: Police have seized RM1.37mil worth of drugs after crippling a distribution ring run by a married couple and another man.
Federal Narcotic Crime Investigation Department (NCID) deputy director (intelligence/operations) Deputy Comm Zainudin Ahmad said they launched a series of raids on Feb 26 between 2pm and 5.15pm.
"We arrested two men and a woman aged between 25 and 28.
"Checks revealed one of the men was married to the woman," he told reporters at the Brickfields police headquarters here on Tuesday (March 2).
DCP Zainudin said police seized 38kg of syabu and 457g of heroin from them.
"All three have been remanded to assist with further investigations.
"We also seized three cars worth about RM68,000, jewellery worth RM20,150 and RM23,684 cash," he said, adding that the ring was connected to another drug ring which was crippled in Penang in November last year.
During that raid, police seized RM8.14mil worth of drugs and arrested six.
DCP Zainudin said investigations revealed the suspects got their supply from a neighbouring country.
"We believe there are at least two to three members of the ring still at large and we are tracking them down," he said.
