The drug screening also showed that two of the police officers and the civilian also tested positive for methamphetamine. According to Bernama, one of the policeman also has a past criminal record related to gang robbery in 2017.

Ayob added that they have been suspecting that this activity has been happening since November and that the arrested police personnel received a payment of between RM50 to RM1,500 each time the transaction is carried out. This is the first time the arrests have been made as previously no reports were filed.

“We will conduct a thorough investigation and firm action will be taken against any non-supervising officer, who has no accountability aspects. “

Following this incident, senior officers and policemen at the Kota Tinggi District Police Headquarters (IPD) will face stern action, including dismissal.The case is currently being investigated under Section 39B, Section 39A(1), Section 6, and Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
