KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): A taxi driver and three other men were arrested last Wednesday for allegedly trafficking drugs worth RM3.4 million using a taxi.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Saiful Azly Kamaruddin said police found part of the drugs stashed in the taxi’s boot after detaining the first suspect. The drugs seized included heroin base weighing 31,165 grammes (gm), 10,127 gm of ketamine, 2,497 gm of syabu, 930 gm of Ecstasy pills and 400 Eramin 5 pills weighing 100 gm.

Saiful Azly said this led to the arrest of three other suspects and a house and condominium were subsequently raided.

"We surrounded both premises and found various types of drugs stashed there, ” he said at a news conference at the Kuala Lumpur police contingent headquarters here on Monday (March 8)

He added that police also found a pistol and 23 9mm bullets at the condominium and seized a car and RM11,782 in cash.

Saiful Azly said all the suspects are locals aged between 34 and 58 and had prior records involving criminal and drug-related offences, adding that two of them tested positive for drugs.

The case is being investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 and all the suspects are being remanded for seven days until Wednesday (March 10). - Bernama
