KUALA LUMPUR: An Indonesian man suspected of being the mastermind of a drug trafficking syndicate was arrested, along with five locals, following a raid at a condominium in Jalan Ampang here last Friday.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Allaudeen Abdul Majid said the raid resulted in the seizure of 10 kilogrammes of methamphetamine estimated to be worth RM341,000 and three vehicles: a Toyota Alphard, a Toyota Vios and a Perodua Alza.
In a statement, he said preliminary investigations found that the syndicate had been active for the past two months in the federal capital.
The five local suspects, comprising four men and a woman, had previous records for drug and criminal cases, with three of them on the police wanted list.
Allaudeen said all six suspects, aged between 26 and 46, tested positive for methamphetamine and are under remand until Nov 24 for investigation under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
