Couple nabbed with drugs worth over RM9.5mil in Kuala Krai

KUALA KRAI: Kelantan police arrested a couple aged 26 and 28 with syabu worth more than RM9.5mil in Kampung Batu Jong, here, yesterday.

Kelantan police chief Datuk Muhamad Zaki Harun said it was the biggest seizure made by a Patrol Car Unit (MPV) at 8am.

"The unit stopped a vehicle driven by a local couple after it was seen moving in a suspicious manner. From an inspection of the vehicle, the police found 11 sacks each containing 24 packages wrapped in 'aluminum foil' written 'Guanyingwang' suspected to be syabu.

"All the seized drugs weighing 264kg are estimated to be worth RM9,504,000 believed to be for the Klang Valley market," he said at a press conference at Kuala Krai district police headquarters (IPD), here Saturday (Dec 3).

Commenting further, Muhamad Zaki said an initial investigation found that the male suspect took a payment of RM5,000 for one trip to carry the drugs and left the vehicle with the drugs in another area for another individual to pick up the consignment.

"The couple was found to have no previous criminal record. They were remanded for seven days starting today until next Dec 9 to assist the investigation under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952," he said. - Bernama
