KUALA LUMPUR, May 21, 2015:
Police seized RM227,000 worth of drugs and arrested eight people, seven men and a woman, in separate raids at Brickfields and Sentul from Friday until last night, according to Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Tajudin Md Isa.
He said that during a raid at a terrace house in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, police found drugs believed to be supplies for Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Perak and Penang.
“We also found a note book, listing out all their business records. It was divided into four states which amounted to hundreds of thousands of ringgit in just six months.
“We believe this syndicate has been active for the past six months and we are still looking for the remaining members of the group for investigation purposes,” he said during a media conference at the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters here today.
Tajudin added that the house was rented by the suspects about four months ago and they are believed to have used the place to process the drugs.
Police had also seized a book containing a “recipe”, used as a reference in processing drugs, and a machine used to process Ecstacy which was bought from China.
Among the drugs seized by police, according to Tajudin, are 1.3kg metamphetamine, 430gm of ketamin, 80gm of heroin, 3.5kg marijuana and 519gm of the eramine pills.
All those arrested will be remanded until May 26 and six of them tested positive for drugs while two had criminal records.
The case will be investigated under Section 39B of Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
