KOTA KINABALU

 

Police thwarted attempts by two drug syndicates to traffic in 10.3 kilograms of syabu (methamphetamine) worth about RM1 million in 10 Chinese Tea packets during two separate raids here and in Tawau on Wednesday.

 

Sabah Narcotics Department head Superintendent Mohamed Fadzil Rahman said the arrests were made following a tip-off about drug activities taking place at a hotel here on Jan 4.

 

In the 2.45am raid, police stormed a hotel room and found 10 Chinese Tea packets, including four labelled as ‘Refined Chinese Tea’ and six the labelled as ‘Refined Tea’ stacked neatly in a luggage

 

“Upon inspecting the content of the packets, police found plastic bags containing white crystalline drugs believed to be methamphetamine or syabu.

 

“The drugs, weighing 10,332 grams (or 10.3 kg) are believed to be worth RM1 million,” he told a press conference at the State Police Headquarters in Kepayan yesterday.

 

Police also detained two men in a hotel room and their arrest led to the arrest of two other individuals in a separate hotel a couple of hours later.

 

Police also seized three vehicles, namely a Toyota Hilux and two Toyota Vios, and jewellery all worth RM158,925, said Fadzil.

 

He added that police investigation he believed the drugs were smuggled from a neighbouring country for the local market and the seized drugs could be distributed to more than 13,000 drug addicts in the State within a month.

 

The case is currently being investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, which carries the mandatory dead penalty upon conviction.

 

Fadzil also said that the raid in Kota Kinabalu was the biggest drug seizure made by the police this year following a similar raid in Tawau on the same day.

 

Police nabbed two local men, aged 29 and 48, in front of a convenience  store at Jalan Bunga Fajar in Tawau at about 10.45pm on Jan 4.

 

Police also seized a green bag containing 6,176.65 grams of syabu worth RM676,500 from the suspects.

 

Fadzil said both cases were in collaboration between the State Police Contingent (IPK) and the Tawau District Police (IPD Tawau) in combating drug activities in the country.
