Kuala Lumpur

17 drug dealers and addicts were arrested after a team of police officers investigated a car workshop in Padang Merbok yesterday at 3am.

When the police saw several men acting suspiciously inside, they ordered them to come out. The men then rushed out with parang, knives and metal rods and surrounded the officers.

The men started attacking the outnumbered officers and one of the officers was slashed twice. The officer fired several gun shots in the air which prompted the suspects to flee in two cars and some motorcycles.

Two suspects were caught but were released by their accomplice. They were caught again near the Police Museum later. 15 other suspects were arrested a few hours later when they went to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for treatment. The cars, a Honda Civic and a Proton Wira, were seized.

Police recovered 190g of heroin worth RM10,000, parang and knives in the workshop. They believe that the location was a “national headquarters” for drug dealers and addicts.
