KOTA KINABALU: Authorities have seized 900g of syabu, which was left in a boat following a chase in Menumbok waters on Monday (June 27).

A Labuan Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) vessel was patrolling the area when they spotted a suspicious boat at around 12.30am.

Labuan MMEA director Maritime Kpt Nudin Jusoh said when approached, the boat sped off towards Tanjung Klias.

He said they searched the area and found an abandoned boat.

“During a further inspection of the boat, we found the packed drugs with a value of about RM50,000.

“The drugs and the boat had been taken to the Labuan maritime jetty for further investigations under the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952,” he said.

Kpt Nudin told those with any information of drug activities in Labuan to channel them to 087-427999.
