Malaysian police nab two men, seize 5.1kg of drugs worth RM255,000

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – Police detained two men and seized 5.1 kilogrammes of drugs believed to be methamphetamine worth RM255,000 in a raid in Serdang Perdana, Seri Kembangan.

Serdang deputy OCPD Superintendent Mohd Rosdi Daud said during the recent operation at 10pm, police nabbed a man at the premises and found five plastic packets suspected to contain methamphetamine.

“At the same time, police followed a car believed to be the suspect’s accomplice and detained him at a petrol station nearby,” he said during a press conference yesterday.

Both suspects, aged 28 and 29, had a record of previous drug-related offences and were remanded until August 30 under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

Police also seized a vehicle believed to be used for transporting the drug.

Rosdi said an initial investigation found that the two men became active in trafficking drugs about three months ago and received their drug supply from the Malaysia-Thailand border area and sold to other distributors around the Klang Valley.
