KUALA LUMPUR: Police detained a man and seized drugs worth RM35,000 after raiding a premises at the Bandaraya housing scheme in Bukit Bangsar on Friday.

Brickfields police chief ACP Muhammad Azlee Abdullah said the drugs comprised 445 grams of heroin, syabu (185g), ganja (130g) and eramin 5 (530 pills) while the suspect also tested positive for morphine.

“The 25-year-old suspect has two previous records for drugs, namely in 2009 and 2010. He will be remanded until June 21,” he said.

Muhammad Azlee said the premises that was raided was believed to be a transit point for drugs.

“We believe the suspect is a drug trafficker but we are investigating if he has any connection with drug syndicates in Bangsar,” he said.

The case is being investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 which carries the mandatory death penalty if convicted. – Bernama
