Syabu worth over RM300,000 seized in KL condo raid, six nabbed

KUALA LUMPUR: More than RM300,000 worth of syabu was seized following raids at a condominium on Jalan Ampang Kiri.

An Indonesian man, believed to be the drug syndicate's leader, was detained along with four local men and a local woman.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Allaudeen Abdul Majid said police raided the lobby and a unit at the condominium at about 7.20pm on Friday (Nov 17).

"We detained the six suspects aged between 26 and 46.

"The 10kg of syabu worth RM341,000 was seized at the lobby area," he said in a statement on Tuesday (Nov 21).

Various things were seized including three vehicles worth a total of RM280,000 during the raids, he said.

"The five locals detained had past criminal and drug related records while the Indonesian man had none.

"All suspects tested positive for methamphetamine," he added.

Investigations showed the syndicate has been active for about two months in the city, Comm Allaudeen said.

"They would send the drugs to customers based on orders received.

"We are still investigating the source of drugs," he said.

All suspects have been remanded until Nov 24, he said.

"The drugs seized could have been supplied to 20,000 drug users," he said.

Comm Allaudeen also urged the public to continue supplying information on crime and drug-related activities in the city.

"Those with information can do so via the Narcotic Crime Investigation Department (NCID) WhatsApp hotline at 012-2087222," he said.
