Cops nab suspected smugglers, seize drugs worth RM2mil in raid on Cheras house

KUALA LUMPUR: Two suspected drug smugglers were found with over RM2mil worth of drugs after police raided a house in Cheras here.

City police chief Comm Datuk Azmi Abu Kassim said the raid was conducted on Wednesday (May 5).

"The two men, aged 44 and 57, were caught and upon inspection of the house, we located around 43.925g of suspected methamphetamine and 8.4kg of suspected ketamine.

"Two cars modified to smuggle drugs were also seized. We believe the duo was buying the drugs to be distributed within the area," he said in a press conference at the contingent headquarters here on Friday (May 7).

The total value of the drugs seized has been estimated to be around RM2,026,765.

Investigations showed that the two men had been active for around three months.

Sources said the suspects paid RM6,000 each to modify the cars to hide the drugs during transportation.

On a separate matter, Comm Azmi said there will be at least nine roadblocks around the city during this MCO period.

"At least nine here, and in Putrajaya around four. Like I said previously we will also be stepping up our enforcement and surveillance in lieu of Hari Raya next week," he said.
