PJ cops nab Middle Eastern students for drug trafficking

PETALING JAYA: Police here have seized over 11 kilograms of ganja after crippling a drug distribution syndicate run by Middle Eastern students here.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid said they initially arrested two foreign suspects at the main lobby of a condominium at around 6.30pm on July 22.

"Our team then raided a condominium unit and arrested another foreigner and a local.

"The three foreigners were college students while the local was a drop-out," he told reporters at the district police headquarters on Tuesday (July 27).

He said when they checked the first two suspects they found 213g of drugs on them.

"Further checks at the apartment led to the seizure of 5.23kg of ganja. We also found a weighing scale, cutters and drug paraphernalia. The three foreigners also tested positive for ganja," he said, adding that police also seized cash at the scene.

Meanwhile during a follow-up raid, ACP Mohamad Fakhrudin said that police personnel arrested two more foreign students during a raid along Jalan Persiaran Golf the next day.

"When we checked the car they were driving we found a bag which contained over 6.12kg of ganja. All the suspects have been remanded to assist with further investigations," he said.
