KUALA LUMPUR: Some RM160,000 worth of ganja were seized following raids in the city and Johor, says Comm Datuk Mohd Shuhaily Mohd Zain.
The Kuala Lumpur police chief said two men and a woman were also detained in the operation on June 2.
"The two men aged 30 and 40 were detained at a parking lot in Jalan Cemur. We also seized 52kg of ganja worth about RM160,000, which was stored in a Perodua Bezza.
"We seized the car where the drugs were stored and a Honda HRV as well as RM485 cash during the raid," he said in a statement on Tuesday (June 6).
He said that a 45-year-old woman was apprehended in Nusajaya, Johor on the same day.
"The two men had prior criminal records, including for drug related offences," he added.
Comm Mohd Shuhaily said the syndicate had been operating for about a month, distributing drugs in the city.
"The syndicate would deliver the drugs to customers after receiving their orders.
"The two men were the transporters while the woman in Johor was the mastermind," he said.
The 40-year-old male suspect was married with no children while the 30-year-old male suspect was a single father with three children, he said.
"The woman detained is married with two children and she also runs her own business. The suspects have been remanded until Friday (June 9)," he said.
The drugs seized could have been supplied to 150,000 drug users, Comm Mohd Shuhaily said.
"The successful operation would not have been possible without the cooperation of the public, thus we hope the public will continue to pass credible information to the police.
"We urge those with information on drug related activities to contact the Narcotic Crime Investigation Department (NCID) hotline via Whatsapp at 012-2087222," he said.
