A high speed chase between police and three drug traffickers in Bangsar resulted in seven damaged cars belonging to residents of the Sri Pahang flats.
At 2am yesterday, a Brickfields anti-narcotics police unit was making its rounds when it caught sight of a Proton Waja vehicle with three suspicious men. When the police ordered the driver to stop, the driver sped off towards the flats.
The police gave chase and fired a few warning shots before they ended up in Lorong Maarof. There, the suspects ran off on foot but were later caught. One of the suspects was shot in the arm and was sent to the University Malaya Medical Centre for treatment.
Later, several packets of white powder believed to be ganja were found near the scene, which were probably thrown out of the suspects’ vehicle. Police also found a samurai sword in the car.
