    Cops bust international drug syndicate, drugs worth MYR3.8M seized

    JASIN (BERNAMA) – Police have crippled an international drug distribution syndicate with the seizure of over MYR3.8 million worth of syabu and ecstasy pills in a series of raids in Melaka and Selangor on Wednesday.

    Melaka Police Chief Datuk Zainol Samah said eight local suspects, comprising six men and two women, were arrested during the raids.

    The suspects, who included two married couples, were aged between 25 and 48, he added.

    He said the first raid was conducted at 3pm in Serkam, Jasin, where two men and a woman were arrested in a car in front of the house.

    Following checks in the house, police arrested another man and a woman, as well as seized 82.64 kilogrammes (kg) of syabu, worth MYR2.975 million, and 16.62kg of ecstasy pills (MYR831,000), he told a press conference yesterday.

    Zainol said the syabu drug was found in sacks and tea bag packets, while the ecstasy pills were found in clear plastic bags, each containing about 5,000 pills.

    He said the Melaka and Bukit Aman Narcotic CID team also carried out three more raids in Permatang Serai and Kampung Pulai in Melaka, and Kota Damansara in Selangor on the same day, during which three more suspects were arrested.

    Zainol said police also seized three motorcycles, four cars, jewellery, cash, and several foreign currency notes. All the suspects are in remand for seven days until January 11 for investigation.
