One Malaysian and four Malaysians, aged between 21 and 71, were arrested on suspicion of drug trafficking in and around Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
He worked with the CNB
The Malaysian Narcotics Crime Investigation Department (NCID) acted on the basis of information provided by Singapore’s Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB), according to a press release.
The CNB said it has been monitoring the union based in Malaysia since July 2021.
Allegedly used freight forwarders from Singapore
The union was believed to have traded drugs using shipping companies from Singapore as legitimate freight forwarders to deliver packages containing hidden drugs to other countries through Singapore.
The CNB actively monitored their activities and provided information to the NCID, which subsequently began their investigation.
Between September 24 and 28, 2021, NCID conducted a series of operations in the vicinity of Selangor, Negeri Sembilan and Kuala Lumpur.
Five suspects were arrested as a result of the operation.
55 kg of controlled drugs seized
About 55kg of controlled drugs, including “Ice” and Ketamine, with an estimated street value of RM 4.9 million ($ 1.6 million), were seized.
Hidden in children’s toys and dolls
The children’s toys and dolls seized from the package were suspected to contain controlled drugs.
“Ice” was found between the corrugated cardboard in packages with children’s toys and dolls.
Various drug processing equipment and 2.2kg of caffeine believed to be used in the production of illegal drugs were also seized during the operations.
NCID investigation into the drug activities of the suspects is ongoing.
