JOHOR BARU – Police crippled a Singaporean base drug syndicate with the arrest of a 46-year old Singaporean druglord recently.
In the Feb 4 operation around Johor Baru, police also arrested eight other suspects, a Singaporean and seven Malaysians aged between 20s and 30s.
Also seized were drugs comprising heroine, ketamine, ecstasy, methamphetamine and eramin-5, nine luxury vehicles and Singaporean currency valued more than RM1mil.
Johor police chief Datuk Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said the crippling of the drug syndicate was a joint success with the Singaporean Central Narcotics Bureau who had fed the information on the syndicate activity around Johor Baru.
“This success reflects the close working relationship between Malaysia and Singapore police force in busting drug dealing activities along both countries borders,” he said at a press conference at the police contingent headquarters today. – NST Online
