Three nabbed in drug bust, RM5.6 million worth ketamine seized

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – Three men were arrested and 92.7 kilos of ketamine seized in a drug bust in Selangor last Friday.

Bukit Aman Narcotics Crimes Investigation Department Deputy Director DCP Zulkifli Ali said the first arrest made at 7.40pm involved a man who was in a car in Jalan Jengka, Subang Jaya.

He said the arrest of the 41-year-old man led to the seizure of 90 packets of Chinese tea containing drugs hidden in a sack that was kept on the floorboard of the back seat.

The other two men, aged 49 and 54 years, were in a car when caught at the Sungai Buloh R & R along the North-South Expressway.

“We believe the drugs were brought in from a neighbouring country to be distributed around the Klang Valley… the haul could have supported 300,000 ‘fixes’,” he told a press conference at the Subang Jaya police headquarters. Zulkifli said each of the packets weighed a kilo and was being sold at between RM60,000 and RM65,000 in the market.

Police seized the three cars belonging to the third suspect besides RM8,000 in cash and a Titan wrist watch, he added.
