JOHOR BARU: A raid at a factory in Taman Tan Sri Yaakob near Skudai has led the Marine Police Region II to seize 383 boxes containing fake liquor.

"The factory is believed to be processing and storing fake liquor. During the raid, a 33-year-old male foreigner was detained," he said in a statement on Wednesday (June 5).
