MALACCA: Police smashed two drug-processing laboratories within 24 hours.
The anti-narcotic operations also arrested 11 suspects and seized RM1.32mil worth of drugs.
Malacca police chief SAC I Datuk Rodwan Mohd Yusof said this was the largest drug haul in the state this year.
The suspects, aged between 20 and 42, were arrested in separate raids carried out throughout the city yesterday morning, during which police also uncovered the drug labs, he told reporters here yesterday.
The suspects will be remanded for seven days for further investigations, he said, adding that the suspects included two men from China and an Indonesian woman.
The drugs seized from the labs included 8,646 Ecstasy pills, 8.64kg of powdery substance to make 17,296 Ecstasy pills, 1.75kg of ketamine, 260 Erimin 5 pills, 350gm of syabu and 1,800 psychotropic pills
Also seized were an automatic pistol with live rounds of ammunition, five cars, jewellery and RM267,336.
Rodwan said the break came following a tip-off that led to the arrest of a man in his 20s at a resort in Tanjung Kling Thursday, which led to a raid on a house in Taman Merdeka, Batu Berendam yesterday, resulting in the arrest of three women.
