Three, including teen, nabbed as police intensify anti-drug efforts

Supt Mat Jusoh Muhamad SARIKEI: Police have intensified efforts to curb the drug menace in the district, arresting two men and a teenager over a two-day period last week. The first arrest took place last Thursday when police nabbed a 39-year old lorry driver at the compound of a primary school around 2.30pm.

District police chief Supt Mat Jusoh Muhamad said the suspect was waiting in a car when he was approached by anti-narcotics personnel and subjected to a search. “A search led to the discovery of a pink straw tube containing about 0.11 grammes of crystalline substance believed to be Syabu. “A urine test carried out later that day found the suspect positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine,” he said, adding the lorry driver is being investigated under Section 12(2) of Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 and Section 15(1)(a) of the same Act.

The subsequent two arrests occurred the following day involving an 18-year-old boy and a 27-year-old man.

According to Mat Jusoh, the pair was detained along Jalan Century around 5.45pm and, following a urine test, were found to be positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine.

He said the two suspects are currently being probed under Section 15(1)(a) of Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
