BINTULU, April 22 (Bernama) -- Police have detained three Indonesian men active in trafficking drugs here since the end of last year in a raid on an unnumbered house in Jalan Abang Galau yesterday.

Sarawak Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department (NCID) head Supt Sahar Abdul Latif said during the raid at about 9.00 pm, police also seized 531.95 grammes of syabu worth RM79,792.50 from the three unemployed men, aged between 21 and 34 years.

“Early screening found all three suspects testing positive for the drugs amphetamine and methamphetamine,” he said in a statement today.

The syabu was found by the NCID team from the Sarawak Contingent Headquarters, which carried out the raid, stored in cigarette boxes, watch boxes and plastic bags.

“The suspects are being investigated under section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 which carries the death penalty if convicted and now they have been remanded 14 days under section 6 (1) (c) of the Immigration Act 1959/63,” he said.
