IPOH: Police arrested a married couple in separate raids in Ipoh on suspicion of drug trafficking and seized drugs worth RM2 million last Thursday.
Perak police chief Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said the 34-year-old Malaysian was detained at a food court at Jalan Raja Musa Mahadi while his wife, a Vietnamese, aged 38, was nabbed near Panorama Lapangan Perdana at about 4.40pm.
He said police conducted a check on a car belonging to the man and found 10 plastic packages containing methamphetamine.
“Further checks on another car at a parking lot of an apartment found 10 plastic packages containing the same drug.
“Police also seized a branded watch, an anklet, a ring and a bracelet, all estimated to be worth RM83,315,” he told reporters today.
Mior said the man, who works at a mirror and aluminium shop, tested positive for methamphetamine, while the drug test conducted on his wife came back negative.
The couple, with no previous record, is believed to have been active in drug trafficking since three months ago.
They have been remanded for a week.-BERNAMA
