KOTA KINABALU --- A couple may face the death penalty after they were caught with 74.50 grams of Ketamin and 0.62 gram of Eramin 5 during a raid at a motel at Sadong Jaya Commercial Centre here on Wednesday.

Both suspects, who are locals and aged 21, were caught by police from the narcotic division around 4.30am on January 27.

City police chief ACP M. Chandra said the police had earlier stopped the man on suspicion of drug activities at a parking lot at Sadong Jaya Commercial Centre.

The suspect then led police to a motel room where they found the woman inside.

Investigation at the scene found a box containing 22 plastic packets with substance believed to be Ketamin weighing 74.50 grams, and two pills believed to be Eramin 5 weighing 0.62 gram, he said, adding that police also seized 10 empty plastic bags and an electronic weighing scale.

The drugs, said Chandra, were believed to have a street price of RM5,000.
