Cops issue compounds to 111 people for violating SOP in Sri Petaling

KUALA LUMPUR: The police issued compounds to 111 individuals for movement control order (MCO) standard operating procedures (SOP) violations after raiding an entertainment outlet at Sri Petaling here.

City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Saiful Annuar Yusoff said they raided the outlet at around 11.10pm on Saturday (April 17).

"We raided the premises after receiving a tip-off that it was operating without SOP compliances.

"A team of City CID and Narcotics Crime Investigation Department personnel together with Brickfields CID went to the premises and found people listening to music and dancing without observing physical distancing," he said in a statement on Sunday (April 18).

He said they checked 112 patrons involving 72 men and 40 women as well as nine staff members there.

"We issued compounds to 109 Malaysians as well as one permanent resident and the premises caretaker. We also arrested three foreigners for committing an act which is likely to spread an infection as well as immigration offences," he said.

SAC Saiful Annuar said they also checked 45 individuals' urine for drugs but all tests came back negative.

He added that they seized several items used at the premises.

Those with information on criminal activities can contact the City CID operations room at 03-2146 0670 or the City Police hotline at 03-2115 9999.
