KOTA BARU: Police fired several shots to stop a four-wheeled drive vehicle that was being used to smuggle drugs.

Kuala Krai acting district police chief DSP Kamarulzaman Harun said this happened after a patrol car tailed a vehicle from the Batu Jong area in Kuala Krai to the Laloh intersection here.

He said the patrol unit flagged down the vehicle but the driver refused to stop and police fired several shots at the vehicle's tires.

"Police seized a machete and a package containing 162 syabu pills," he said in a statement on Saturday (March 2).

He said they arrested the 45-year-old driver who has a criminal record and later tested positive for drugs.

The suspect was remanded for four days and is being investigated under Section 39A(1) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 and Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, among others. – Bernama
