SEREMBAN: Police have seized 5.2kg of syabu from a couple in an operation in Nilai near here.

State police chief Dep Comm Datuk Ahmad Dzaffir Mohd Yussof said the duo, who were in their early 40s and believed to be members of a syndicate, were detained in front of a row of shops around 1.50am on Monday (March 11).

"A police team had stopped the suspects' car at a car park, and upon checking the vehicle, they found the drugs concealed in five packets," he said in a statement.
