Police arrested 20 people, including 13 foreigners, and busted two international drug syndicates which were involved in processing and distributing syabu. In total, police hauled 36.3kg of syabu from the syndicates, which had been active in Perak, Penang and the Klang Valley for the past one year.
Last Saturday, police arrested three Hong Kong nationals and a Chinese national in Taiping, Perak, who led them to a house in Taman OUG. Acting as a storage site for drugs and chemicals, police discovered 14kg of liquid suspected to be syabu.
In the Klang Valley, investigations revealed that the syndicates had been actively distributing syabu in Kota Damansara, Taman Desa Baiduri and Taman OUG.
Authorities believe that these two syndicates had links to another syndicate which involved foreigners from Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Japan and was busted in January.
