The woman, 26, along with a male passenger, 38, were arrested along Jalan Persiaran Bandar Baru Bangi at 12.30pm with the assistance of several police patrol vehicles.

Kajang district police chief ACP Mohd Zaid Hassan said a search of the vehicle led to the discovery of 2.1g of a crystalised substance believed to be methamphetamine.

"Both driver and passenger tested positive for methamphetamine, and possessed prior records related to drug offences," he said in a statement here on Monday (May 22), adding that both suspects had been remanded for three days till May 24 to facilitate investigations under Section 186 of the Penal Code, Section 12(3) and 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 and Section 42(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.

She then drove dangerously trying to escape, smashing through the toll barrier at the Sungai Ramal toll plaza and damaging several civilian vehicles and a police patrol car. - Bernama
