Abdul-Aziz-drugKUANTAN: Police uncovered drug dealers’ tactic of using a beauty salon in Taman Aman, Jalan Bukit Sekilau here for drug trafficking after the premises were raided on Tuesday.

Kuantan district police chief ACP Abdul Aziz Salleh said police arrested a married couple aged 55 and 53 years, the salon owner, 36, a man, 38, and a woman, 44, all of whom belong to “Geng Aunty”.

“Various types of drugs were found in the salon, including a silver packet and five translucent packets believed to contain heroin weighing 875.85g, 330 Erimin 5 pills and three small packets of syabu weighing 27.50g,” he said at a press conference at the Kuantan police headquarters here today.

Aziz said further investigation revealed that the group had been actively distributing the drugs, allegedly obtained from Kuala Lumpur, to customers in Kuantan, primarily in the fishing areas in Kamunting.
