SANDAKAN: The District Narcotics Criminal Investigation Division (NCID) seized syabu (methamphetamine) and cannabis worth more than RM27,000 from two men in separate raids at Kampung Tinusa 2, Mile 7 Sandakan on June 10.

District police chief ACP Mohd Azhar Hamin said the first arrest was at 11am involving a foreigner aged in his 30s. The NCID team found two packets containing crystalline substance weighing nearly 95 grams from a bag which the suspect had with him.

The syabu was worth RM7,200 in the illicit drug market, Mohd Azhar said at the district police headquarters here yesterday.

Meanwhile, the NCID nabbed another suspect at Jalan Masjid in the same water village and seized 250 grams of Syabu and 5.5 grams of cannabis valued at RM20,000 at 4pm the same day.

The district police chief said a local man in his 30s was a riding a motorcycle which was stopped by policemen from NCID based on information received.

The cops checked the motorcycle and seized five packets containing syabu and cannabis which were placed in the motorcycle tray.

Mohd Azhar said both suspects were also tested positive for syabu, adding that, they were being detained at the police station for further investigations.

“The foreigner will be investigated under Section 6, Section 15(1)(a) and Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs 1952 while the local man faces investigations under Section 15(1)(a) and Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952,” he said.

The seized substance would be sent to the Chemist Department for analysis, he added.

Mohd Azhar attributed the success of the arrests to information provided by members of the public. Present during the media conference were senior NCID officers including head of district NCID ASP Kanthan Vivekhanantam.
