Cops bust drug ring in Klang Valley, seize RM8mil in drugs and arrest 11


PETALING JAYA: Over RM8mil in drugs were seized during multiple narcotics raids in the Klang Valley.

Police secretary Deputy Comm Datuk Noorsiah Mohd Saaduddin, in a statement on Thursday (July 14), said that five raids were conducted on July 8 by both state and Federal police.

"Eleven members of the syndicate were arrested, aged 22 to 38 years old. During the operations, 141.1kg of ketamine, 18.6kg of Eramin 5 pills and 16.5kg of ecstasy pills were seized.

"The total value of all the drugs seized have been estimated to be around RM8.07mill and could be used by 502,257 drug users," she said.

Investigations showed that the syndicate would operate out of homes by turning them into processing labs and storehouses.

The group is thought to have been active since February and primarily operated within the Klang Valley.

All have been remanded for seven days, started July 9.

Two of the arrested suspects were found to have prior drug and criminal related offences.

"Action was also taken to seize several syndicate assets, with the combined value of RM582,331. These include eight cars and RM20,330 in cash.

"This operation has successfully dismantled one drug distribution syndicate that was found to have been pushing their drugs for the local market. Investigations are ongoing to trace down remaining members," she said.
