Married couple nabbed for drug trafficking in Klang


KLANG: A man and his wife were detained while an array of drugs were seized following a raid at a house in Klang.

South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Cha Hoong Fong said the married couple were packing the drugs when police raided their home at about 2.20am on Feb 29.

"We seized about 1kg of ganja, 197g of syabu, 793g of heroin, a weighing machine and cash.

"The drugs are worth about RM60,000," he told a press conference at the South Klang police headquarters on Friday (March 8).

The drugs are believed to be for the Klang market, he said.

"We believe the married couple, in their 30s, were using the premises as a packing facility.

"They would cater to clients in Klang and would deliver the drugs based on orders received.

"They have been operating for several months and the husband has a criminal record. We also believe they have been receiving their drug supply locally," he said.

In another case, a man was detained along with 100 packets filled with 4.5kg of ecstasy powder at a hotel in Klang at 10pm on Feb 26, ACP Cha said.

"We believe the drugs, worth RM229,100, were meant to be distributed at entertainment outlets in Klang.

"Each packet of ecstasy powder is sold between RM300 and RM400 in clubs.

"We believe the powder will be mixed in drinks at the clubs.

"We detained the 28-year-old man, believed to be the trafficker," he said.

The drugs are believed to have been supplied from Ulu Tiram, Johor, he said.

"We are investigating further to uncover other syndicate members," he said.

The police will conduct such operations continuously to curb drug abuse and trafficking in the district, he said.

"We appreciate the cooperation shown by the public and we hope they continue to supply us with information on any criminal activity, especially drug-related ones," ACP Cha said.
