IPOH: An illegal immigrant was detained in Langkap, Teluk Intan on Monday for suspected involvement in a drug trafficking syndicate since March.

Perak police chief Datuk Seri Mohd Yusri Hassan Basri said the Indonesian man, aged 40, was nabbed during a raid conducted on a house at 9.30pm.

"Upon inspection on the premises, authorities discovered a suitcase containing 20 transparent plastic packets filled with heroin, weighing around nine kilogrammes and valued at approximately RM110,000.
