JOHOR BARU: Police have detained a local man and a Vietnamese woman in a drug bust near here on Wednesday (Jan 12).

Johor Narcotics Crime Investigation Department (NCID) deputy chief Supt R. Azizan Ibrahim said police also seized various drugs from the location.

“Their modus operandi is to rent a house in a gated and guarded neighbourhood and use it to store drugs,’’ he said in a statement on Thursday (Jan 13).

He said the 31-year-old man and the 37-year old woman had been operating from the house since last year.

Supt R. Azizan said they seized 89.7g of syabu, 64.9g of ketamine, 3.2g of cannabis, 623.4g of ecstasy, 77.5gm of magic mushrooms, 304 ecstasy pills, 337 Erimin 5 pills and 26 Yaba pills.

“The seized drugs have a street value of RM63,785 and can satisfy 3,569 drug addicts,’’ he said.

Supt R. Azizan said police also seized a car worth RM43,000 and RM550 in cash, bringing the total value of the seizures to RM107,335.

He said the two suspects also tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine, and one had a previous drug-related offence.

He said the two have been remanded from Jan 13 to 19, and the case was being investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

He said Johor police detained 582 individuals from Jan 1 to 13 for various drug-related offences and seized 92.04kg of drugs with a street value of RM305,697.50.

“We also confiscated assets worth RM382,180 from 582 individuals,’’ said Supt R. Azizan.
