Parcel with drugs not linked to high-level officials, say cops

SEPANG: Eyebrows were raised when a government officer was informed that a parcel addressed to high-level officials was held after it was found containing a banned item.

In a statement today (March 12), Sepang OCPD Asst Comm Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof said the civil servant in Putrajaya had filed a report after receiving a call on March 10.

"Based on the information given, the parcel was suspected to contain a banned substance and the week prior, the same government office had received a parcel that contained 'cannabis leaf'," he said.

The names of officials have been withheld by the authorities.

The report stated that the parcel was being held at a parcel delivery hub in Pulau Meranti.

"At 6.30pm on the same day, the complainant and two officers from the Sepang Narcotics Crime Investigation Department went to the hub and seized the package.

“Inside a brown parcel box was a green toothpaste tube that said 'Happy Green' and it is believed that the toothpaste contained ganja extract.”

The box contained a sticker and was addressed to "Pusat Pentadbiran Kerajaan Persekutuan" (the Federal Administrative Capital).

He said checks showed the sender's address in Indonesia.

"Investigations have determined that the items seized have no relations to the addressees," he added. Investigations are ongoing.
