Drugs in spools of thread
THREE Indonesians who ran a sundry shop in Ulu Klang, Kuala Lumpur, had an ingenious way to sell syabu - hidden in the hollow centres of spools of thread.
The three men, aged between 22 and 45, had devised the cunning method to peddle drugs at their sundry shop in Taman Permai to fool enforcement authorities
Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Jalil Hassan said customers who wanted to purchase the drugs would have to tell them in code the number of spools they wish to buy.
"Their little side business which has been active for roughly six months was smashed when we raided their shop on Thusday," he said adding that police found RM3,000 (S$1,288) worth of syabu hidden in the spools of thread.
He added police also seized over 100 cartons of contraband cigarettes worth around RM7,000 in the shop.
ACP Abdul Jalil said two of the men also tested positive for drugs.
