Cops nab six in raids, find RM837,000 worth of drugs

Police nabbed six people in separate raids in the city since early this month and seized assorted drugs with a street value of about RM837,000.

City narcotics deputy chief Supt Adnan Azizon said among those nabbed was a 45-year-old taxi driver, who was picked up behind a hotel in Jalan Ipoh at around 8.20pm on Friday.

“We found in his taxi two packages containing 19,750 Eremin 5 pills which had a street value of about RM395,000,” he said at the city police headquarters here on Monday.

“Investigations found that he acted as a distributer for drug users and pushers in the Klang Valley.”

In another case, a 27-year-old man was detained near Jalan PPRT Seri Alam in Sungai Besi at 9pm on Thursday.

He had hidden in a cereal box 3,390 Ecstasy pills said to be worth about RM135,600. The man tested positive for drugs.

Supt Adnan said police also arrested a 38-year-old labourer at an abandoned building near Jalan Ipoh on Nov 5. Police seized five packets with 2.26kg of heroin from him.

A 50-year-old man was also picked up three days earlier near a hotel in Jalan Conlay.

“The suspect led us to the arrest of two others at a luxury hotel,” said Supt Adnan. “We seized 1.72kg of syabu worth about RM250,000 from them.”

In IPOH, police seized RM160,000 worth of drugs and arrested an entertainment outlet manager and two others near Greentown.

Perak narcotics chief Asst Comm Roslan Abd Wahid said all three suspects, aged 30, 32 and 47, were believed to be in the middle of a drug deal when police moved in to arrest them at about 10pm on Saturday.

“We found a bag containing eight packets of what is believed to be ketamine and another packet containing syabu during the operation,” he said here on Monday.

He said police believed that the drugs were to be sold to customers and employees at entertainment outlets in Ipoh and in Taiping.
