Cops foil lame bid to hide drugs under car seat



ALOR SETAR --- A man suspected to be a drug pusher was nabbed after police seized drugs worth about RM31,000 from him at a roadblock mounted outside Anak Bukit police station here.

The police found heroin (888.23gm) and syabu (102.23gm) in a sling bag that the man tried to hide under the front passenger seat of his car.

They had earlier asked the 33-year-old man to pull over in the 1.25am incident on Wednesday.

Kota Setar Deputy OCPD Supt Rohana Omar said that besides the drugs, they also seized two weighing machines and three handphones from the man who had six previous criminal offences.

“The street value of the heroin is said to be between RM17,000 and RM22,000 while the syabu has a market value of RM9,000.

“We have reason to believe the man is a drug pusher covering areas in Jitra and Alor Setar.

“We are still investigating,” she said during a press conference at the Kota Setar police district headquarters yesterday.

Supt Rohana said the man was being investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 which carries the mandatory death sentence.

“He is being remanded until April 5 to facilitate the probe,” she said.
