Over RM6.3mil worth of drugs seized near Bukit Puchong, two nabbed

In Shah Alam, two men were arrested during an attempt to collect RM6.32 million worth of syabu (methamphetamine) near Bukit Puchong. Selangor’s deputy police chief, Deputy Comm Datuk S. Sasikala Devi, reported that the Subang Jaya Narcotics Crime Investigation Department conducted an operation on Nov 12, resulting in the successful seizure and arrests.

The operation involved a week of intelligence gathering before the arrest of the two suspects, aged 32 and 36, who were found in a car around 7.30 pm. Subsequent questioning of the suspects led to information about the drugs, which were stored in a truck approximately 15 meters from the arrest location.

Searching truck revealed eight sacks containing 190 packets labelled as refined Chinese tea. Further investigations unveiled plastic packets containing a substance believed to be methamphetamine inside the tea packages, resulting in the seizure of a total of 191.51 kg of drugs.

Both suspects, except arrest for drug-related offences, also tested positive for methamphetamine, according to Deputy Comm Datuk S. Sasikala Devi’s statement to reporters on Monday (Nov 20).
