88 high on drugs nabbed at entertainment centre

The suspects had rented a room at the family entertainment centre for RM280 an hour for drug-taking activities.

KUALA LUMPUR: Eighty-eight people who turned a family entertainment centre in Puchong into a drug joint were arrested when police raided the place late last night.

The suspects, aged between 18 and 50, included 84 Indonesians who are mostly labourers and factory workers, said Serdang district police chief Ismadi Borhan.

The group was believed to have rented a room at the centre for RM280 an hour and used it for drug-taking activities without the knowledge of the management, Ismadi said.

“The Serdang Narcotics Criminal Investigation Division arrested four local men, 55 Indonesian men and 29 Indonesian women. They were high on drugs when police surprised them.

“Fifty-nine of those arrested did not have any identification documents,” he said.

Police also seized two packets of ketamine and 11 ecstasy pills.
