Police searching for drug case suspect who fled Beluran roadblock


KOTA KINABALU: Police here are on the hunt for a suspect who fled after being stopped at a roadblock at Sapi Nangoh in Beluran on Friday (June 14).

The suspect is 27-year-old Justin Vau Langat, whose last known address was Long Nahan in Baram, Sarawak.

He was last seen driving a grey Proton Saga with the registration number SYR7763.

On the incident that he fled from, Beluran district police chief Supt Hasan Majid said the suspect was stopped at a roadblock manned by the General Operations Force (GOF).

He said that the suspect was accompanied in the car by a male passenger and added that the GOF personnel ordered one of the two men to join them in the inspection, to which the passenger obliged.
