Cops nab ehailing driver in Seri Kembangan making ecstasy pills, 50kg of MDMA among drugs seized

SERDANG: An ehailing driver has been arrested in connection with the seizure of over RM6.38mil worth of methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA).

Serdang OCPD Asst Comm A.A. Anbalagan said police raided a premises at an industrial estate at Seri Kembangan last Friday (Jan 27).

"We raided the location at around 7pm and arrested the 44-year-old suspect.

"We seized 47 packets containing 70.71kg of MDMA, 16 packets containing around 52.33kg of MDMA, 504g of syabu, 18 bottles containing 301.87g of drugs, 21 ecstasy pills, and 13.8g of ganja," he told reporters at the Serdang police headquarters on Thursday.

He said investigations revealed the suspect had been active for over a year and was believed to be making around RM15,000 for about two to three weeks of his activities.

"Our investigations revealed that 10kg of MDMA could produce 50,000 ecstasy pills.

"The suspect is believed to have learned to produce the drugs from videos online and was driven by a need for a lucrative income compared to what he was earning as an ehailing driver," he said adding that the suspect had a record for drug possession.

He said police also seized three machines and other equipment used to process drugs.

"We also seized a Toyota Hilux, Nissan NV20 van and RM10,000 cash.

"We are now looking for other suspects still at large who are connected to the syndicate," he said.
