Police seize drugs worth more than RM1.5mil, five men arrested

IPOH: The police seized drugs, comprising ketamine and methamphetamine, worth RM1,561,040, in two raids in the Gunung Rapat area, last Wednesday (Sept 20).

Perak police chief Datuk Seri Mohd Yusri Hassan Basri said five men, aged between 20 and 27, were arrested in the raids carried out in Kampung Gunung Rapat and Kampung Rapat here.

He said the police also seized a car, two motorcycles and cash.

The first arrest involved three men who were in a car by a roadside on Jalan Gopeng (Kampung Gunung Rapat) after police found the drugs, and this led to the second raid at a house in Kampung Rapat, where the other two men were arrested, he told a press conference here on Friday (Sept 22).

Mohd Yusri said four of the suspects tested positive for THC while the drug test on another suspect yielded a negative result.

Four of the suspects were also found with previous records, including for drug-related offences, he said, adding that the case would be investigated under section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

All the suspects were in remand until Sept 27 to assist the investigation. - Bernama
