JOHOR BAHRU – A man and a woman were detained after police found a pistol in the car they were travelling in at Jalan Kluang-Batu Pahat, near Batu Pahat, today.
Johor police chief Datuk Rusli Ahmad said the 36-year-old man, and the woman, 24, were detained at 4.15 am following a search on their car.
He said police stopped the car after it was seen being driven in a suspicious manner.
“Besides the pistol, police also seized a bullet magazine, 10 rounds of ammunition, 10 Eramin pills and five packets, believed to contain syabu,” he told reporters here today.
In another case, Rusli said two men, age 53 and 69, were detained after police found a revolver and 100 rounds of ammunition at Jalan Mersing-Kluang, near Kluang two days ago.
One of the suspects is wanted by the police for a murder case reported in Kampung Gajah, Kluang, in 1986, he added. – BERNAMA
