Almost RM5mil in drugs seized in Selangor, two syndicates busted, says cops


SHAH ALAM: Raids in Selangor have led to almost RM5mil in seized drugs with two drug distribution rings busted.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Hussein Omar Khan said that the raids were conducted on June 5 and 6.

During the raids, two drug distribution rings were hit and police arrested five men.

In Klang, police arrested a man on June 5, leading to drug seizures that included 16.84kg of ecstasy, 6.78kg of ketamine and 4.36kg of syabu. The drugs were found in a car and house in the area.

Checks showed that the 30-year-old suspect had a record of two prior crimes.

"The value of the seized drugs is around RM4.12mil meant for the Klang Valley," he said at a press conference held at the contingent police headquarters on Tuesday (June 11).

The second raid in Subang Jaya saw four men aged between 30 and 50 years old arrested, whom police believe are syndicate members and drug transporters.

On June 6, police arrested a man at a shopping mall car park and found 20 packages of syabu in a bag.

Follow-up investigations led to the arrest of three other suspects in Rawang.

Checks showed that one suspect had been arrested previously in a neighbouring country, while another had five prior narcotics-related offences.

The combined total of both operations saw drug seizures amounting to RM4.92mil.

"All suspects have been remanded for seven days," he said.
