SHAH ALAM: Two men have been arrested while attempting to collect RM6.32mil worth of syabu from a pickup truck near Bukit Puchong.

Selangor deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk S. Sasikala Devi said a team from the Subang Jaya Narcotics Crime Investigation Department (NCID) conducted an operation on Nov 12 that led to the seizure and arrests.

"They conducted intelligence gathering for about a week before arresting the two suspects in a car at around 7.30pm.

"Upon questioning, the suspects then told police about the drugs, which were in a truck about 15m from where they were arrested," she told reporters on Monday (Nov 20).

She said the suspects then led police to the vehicle, and a search revealed eight sacks containing 190 packets labelled as refined Chinese tea.

"We seized 191.51kg of the drugs and arrested the two men, aged 32 and 36," she said, adding that both suspects also tested positive for methamphetamine.
