A police team headed by Chief Inspector Mohd Hisham A. Rahman raided houses in Bukit Pulau and Taman Bukit Serindit on 31 December 2007 and found drugs worth more than RM1 million. A 21-year-old suspect was arrested in the first house, who then led the police to two more suspects in the second house.
Police said this is the largest drug bust for the state, with seizure of 8,020 ecstasy pills, 1,300 eramine 5 pills, 278gm of ganja and 15.04kg of white powder believed to be ketamine. They also seized RM62,070 cash and a Proton Waja and Proton Iswara vehicles.
When the officers were at the second house, two suspects aged 39 and 43 years old were caught in a Toyota vehicle with 278gm of ganja inside. The three suspects, a bartender, a used car salesman and a transportation agent clerk, are remanded under the Dangerous Drugs Act until 7 January 2008.
Police believe that these arrests will led them to the largest drug trafficking syndicate which has been in operating for two years and supplying drugs in Malacca, Negri Sembilan and northern Johor.
