SHAH ALAM – The Selangor police have crippled a drug trafficking syndicate with the seizure of drugs and drug-processing equipment worth RM7.6 million.
This follows a raid at a house, believed to have been used as a drug processing laboratory in Sungai Pelek, Sepang on Aug 31.
Selangor police chief Datuk Abdul Samah Mat said three men were detained in the Aug 31 raid to facilitate investigations into drug trafficking.
The suspects, aged between 25 and 50 were remanded until Sept 11.
“We believe there are a few more members of the syndicate and are tracking them down.
“The members often moved from one place to another to avoid detection and had rented the house only a week ago,” he told a media conference here today.
During the 5pm raid, Abdul Samah said the police also found seven containers containing liquid, believed to be syabu and 30 transparent plastic packets containing whitish powder, also believed to be syabu, weighing a total of 201kg.
He said the police also found drug-processing paraphernalia believed to be caustic soda, red phosphorus and iodine.
A sports utility vehicle, believed to have been used for drug distribution was also seized by the police. – BERNAMA
