The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) arrested 9 officers and members of an enforcement agency, suspected of being involved in a drug trafficking syndicate.

They also arrested a local fisherman who is believed to be working with the syndicate.

Based on a report by Berita Harian, among the 9 arrested were members of various ranks, including senior officers.

Bukit Aman Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department (JSJN) director, Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay, shared that the 9 civil servants were working at an enforcement agency in Putrajaya.

“The modus operandi of this syndicate is to resell 50kgs of drugs suspected to be syabu that was seized in an operation in the waters of the Straits of Melaka, to drug dealers in northern Peninsula Malaysia.”

The drugs seized by this syndicate are drugs that were being smuggled by another syndicate that is active in Banting, Selangor for the Dumai, Indonesia market,” he said.

The enforcement officers’ syndicate is believed to have started last February and allegedly distributes profits from the sale of the drugs equally between them.

A report by Bernama also shared that this syndicate had operated in Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor Bahru and is believed to have been collaborating with other drug syndicates, making them an important player in drug circulation in Malaysia.

They were also targeting overseas drug markets due to its higher prices.

“For example, one kilogram of syabu in the Malaysian market is worth about RM36,000 while in Indonesia it is RM100,000 and in Australia it reaches RM300,000.”

“As a result of the raid, the police seized syabu weighing 5,377.52 grams, and the drugs could be used by 26.8 million drug addicts,” he added.

On top of that, they also confiscated personal properties worth RM195,235.78, including 4 cars and a bank account.

All suspects were found to have no prior criminal records and a urine screening revealed that 4 of the civil servants were positive for methamphetamine.

PDRM, especially JSJN, will not compromise with any civil servants involved in drug trafficking activities,” Ayob Khan said.

Stay tuned for more updates!
