Labourer and female student held with 2kg of heroin



IPOH --- A labourer and a 19-year-old female student were nabbed with almost 2kg of drugs at the parking lot of a restaurant in Gerik.

State narcotics chief Asst Comm R. Ravi Chandran said the two were arrested with four aluminium foil packets containing 1,821.7gm of what is believed to be heroin with a market value of RM91,085.

The packets were hidden in a black bag.

“We believe the drugs were meant for distribution in Gerik and Lenggong, as well as Baling in Kedah.

“Also seized from the suspects was RM2,000 and a Honda Accord," he told reporters here.

According to ACP Ravi Chandran, police had been monitoring the suspects for three months prior to the 7am incident on Friday.

“The labourer, aged 33, has two convictions – for drug possession and drug use.

“The student has two convictions for drug use,” he said, adding that the two have been remanded until Thursday to facilitate investigations under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

ACP Ravi Chandran said 3,954 people had been arrested in connection with various drug offences in Perak between January and March this year.

“This is a 154% increase compared to the same period last year when 1,553 arrests were made,” he said, adding that drugs worth RM950,000 were seized in the first quarter of this year.
