SEPANG: Police have foiled attempts to smuggle syabu from the Klang Valley to Sabah and Sarawak using courier and cargo services at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in two separate cases this month.

KLIA district police chief Imran Abd Rahman said this led to the seizure of 28kg of syabu worth RM1 million at the airport’s cargo complex, KLIA Cargo.

In the first incident on May 8, police found 3kg of drugs hidden in a microwave oven to be sent to an address in Tawau, Sabah, while on May 11, drugs weighing 25kg were found in two loudspeakers, one to be sent to Tawau and the other to Kuching, Sarawak.

Imran said the syndicate involved was believed to be using a newly opened courier company in the Klang Valley.

“Investigations found the sender used false personal details and address. The recipient’s details and address were also fake,” he told a press conference here today.

Imran said investigations were conducted under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

He said police had crippled several attempts to smuggle drugs through KLIA Cargo, with the seizure of about 56kg of drugs worth RM2 million since the beginning of the year. - FMT
