KLUANG: A motorist rammed his car against a patrol car, a private vehicle and a motorcycle after he was pursued by police at Taman Intan, near here, yesterday.

Police arrested the 35-year-old suspect and found a bag containing drug-taking utensils and another bag containing five packets of heroin weighing 3gm and two packets of what was believed to be syabu weighing 1.05gm.
