Four people have been arrested in a series of raids conducted by police over suspected ties to an international drug-trafficking syndicate. One of the individuals arrested claims to be a ‘Datuk Seri’.

The alleged ‘Datuk Seri’ is a cosmetics entrepreneur from Kelantan.

His brother, who is an army officer based in Kuala Lumpur, was also arrested with him.

Police conducted the raids around Taman Serdang Perdana, Seri Kembangan in Serdang over the week, according to a report in New Straits Times yesterday, 13 November.

The raids were jointly conducted by the Selangor Narcotics Investigation Department and the Serdang Narcotics Division

“In the first raid, police caught two brothers, aged 25 and 31, who were in a Ford Mustang at the location’s roadside,” said Selangor deputy police chief Deputy Commissioner Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed.

Upon checking the Ford Mustang, police found 120 Chinese tea packets containing methamphetamine weighing 126.86 kilogrammes, estimated to be worth RM5 million.

They also seized the sports car, believed to be worth around RM500,000.

The sports car was registered under one of the suspect’s wife’s name, Arjunaidi said.

None of the four men has a criminal record

The authorities, however, are investigating the legitimacy of cosmetics entrepreneur’s claim.

In his business card, he claimed to be a ‘Datuk Seri’.

“The suspects do not have a criminal record. Their urine tests were also negative for drugs,” Arjunaidi said while speaking at a press conference at the Selangor state police headquarters.

Following their arrests, police also detained three unemployed men, who are believed to be the middlemen in the drug transactions

“Preliminary screenings showed that they tested positive for methamphetamine. Two of the suspects have a previous criminal and drug record,” Arjunaidi said, adding that police also seized three vehicles – a Nissan Almeira, a Toyota Innova, and a Honda HRV as well as cash during the second arrest.

The total value of the seizure in the second arrest came to RM158,000.

All seven arrested are now serving out a week-long remand

They will be under remand until 17 November.

The case is being investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 for trafficking, which carries the mandatory death penalty upon conviction.

New Straits Times reported that police were alerted to the incident at about 7.55am yesterday when they received a call from the 47-year-old victim, informing that his private part had been injured.

The victim had met his friend, a 38-year-old woman, at about 6.30am at his old office.

Both the suspect and the victim are unemployed, according to police.

After having met, both of them consumed drugs

“Investigation showed both of them had consumed drugs and were high. The victim soon fell unconscious. When he came about, he found that his genital was bleeding and the suspect was nowhere to be seen,” Northeast district police chief ACP Soffian Santong said in a statement today, 14 November.

Following which, he lodged a police report about the incident.

While the victim sustained slice wounds, the injuries were said to be not serious.

“The victim is now being treated at the Penang Hospital. He also has a record of receiving psychiatric treatment at the same hospital,” ACP Soffian added.

The suspect has since been arrested.

The woman was arrested an hour later the same day.

She was picked up in Paya Terubong at about 9am, with police also seizing several items linked to the case, including a pair of scissors from the scene, believed to have been used to injure the victim.

She has three previous records for drug-related offences.

Authorities are now investigating the case under Section 324 of the Penal Code for causing hurt.
