KUALA LUMPUR, April 27 — Police busted a drug distribution syndicate following the arrests of five individuals in several locations throughout the city centre last week, including seizing narcotics worth almost RM885,000.
City police chief Commissioner Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said the first arrest took place near a condominium along Jalan Ipoh around 9.40am on April 22.
“A team from the Sentul district’s Narcotics Crime Investigation Department first detained a 19-year-old youth before a search on his vehicle found 3kg of ecstasy pills worth RM240,000. The police subsequently seized the suspect’s vehicle worth RM40,000.
