Melaka cops surprised to find crossdresser among 322 screened during entertainment centre raid

MELAKA: A crossdresser was among 322 patrons screened by Melaka police during a check at an entertainment centre at Taman Melaka Raya here.

Police officers were surprised that the 31-year-old man from Temerloh, Pahang, was wearing women’s clothing during the three-hour check that started at 12.01am Sunday (July 17).

The man claimed he was there for a job interview at a nearby eatery and decided to patronise the outlet with his friends.

Melaka police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Zainol Samah said 195 men and 117 women, aged between 22 to 45 years old, were screened during the check that was organised to eliminate vice activities.

He said four Vietnamese women, aged between 31 and 38 years old, were detained for misusing their social visit passes.

"We also detained a 42-year-old local man who was working at the outlet for hiring these illegal foreigners as his guest relation officers," he said.

DCP Zainol said four men were also detained after testing positive for drugs and were being investigated under the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

He also revealed that from January to June this year, 195 individuals, of whom 146 were foreigners, had been detained during 56 raids at entertainment outlets.

DCP Zainol added that during the same period, 25 raids each were conducted at massage parlours and budget hotels to flush out vice activities.
