KUALA SELANGOR: Police arrested an Indonesian man and seized 60.3kg of drugs believed to be syabu and ecstasy, worth over RM1.9 million, during a raid at a fishermen’s jetty in Jeram, Sungai Buloh, here on Sept 22.
Kuala Selangor police chief Ramli Kasa said the raid was conducted at 2.30am after being tipped off by members of the public about the 21-year-old suspect’s suspicious activities at the jetty.
“We sent our enforcement team to the spot and arrested the suspect, who was believed to be in the process of shipping drugs to neighbouring countries.
“Police also seized 56 plastic packets labelled as Chinese tea, believed to contain syabu, weighing 58.9kg worth RM1.85 million, and a plastic bag containing 3,500 ecstasy pills weighing 1.4kg worth RM59,000 in the bushes near the jetty,” he told a press conference here today.
Ramli said the suspect probably used the bushes at the jetty to store the drugs before smuggling them to the Indonesian market by sea.
The man had entered the country on Sept 13 using a tourist visa. He tested positive for syabu.
