SERDANG: Police have seized over 9kg of methamphetamines after arresting an unemployed man following an operation at Serdang Raya.
Deputy Serdang OCPD Supt Mohd Rosdi Daud said a team from the Serdang Narcotic Crime Investigation Department launched the police operation around 5.30pm on April 15.
"We observed a black car arriving at the scene and saw the driver getting out and taking out a bag from the car boot and placing it at his front passenger seat. Our personnel then approached the suspect and he began to act aggressively and a struggle ensued," he told reporters at the Serdang police headquarters on Monday (April 19).
He said police managed to arrest the suspect and checks revealed five packages containing 5.15kg of crystalised substance believed to be syabu in the bag.
"We checked the back seat of the car and found a box containing four more packages containing 4.12kg of a similar substance. We estimate the total seizure (9.28kg) to be worth at least RM380,000," he said.
Supt Mohd Rosdi added that checks revealed the suspect in his 20s had seven priors for crime and drug related offences.
He said the suspect has been remanded until April 22 to help with investigations.
"Our investigations revealed the suspect got his supply from a source in the Klang Valley and has been operating as a transporter and distributor for over a month. We are now working to track down the supplier of the drugs," he said.
