KAJANG (THE STAR) – A father and his two sons have been arrested for allegedly growing and selling cannabis in Kajang, Malaysia.
Kajang OCPD Assistant Commissioner Mohd Zaid Hassan said they raided a house in Semenyih on Friday.
“We arrested a 58-year-old man and his two sons aged 25 and 31 during the raid at a luxury bungalow at 10pm.
“During the raid we found eight cannabis trees and 23 bottles containing dried leaves believed to be ganja,” he said.
ACP Mohd Zaid told reporters at the Kajang police headquarters yesterday that police also seized equipment used to cultivate the plants, such as ultraviolet lamps, oxygen tanks, coolers, booster fans, and heat lamps.
“Investigations revealed the three Singaporean men were supposed to be here selling perfume. They purchased the seeds from a United States (US)-based website and spent nearly four months cultivating the plants and selling the leaves online,” he said.
“They would find buyers via social media and courier the leaves to them,” said ACP Mohd Zaid, adding that the suspects were distributing the drugs in Malaysia and were also planning to distribute the drugs to neighbouring countries.
He said the drugs seized were worth at least MYR19,000.
