IPOH, Sept 27 — Police detained an Indonesian man and seized syabu worth RM1.74 million by the roadside at Bagan Lipas Laut, Rungkup in Bagan Datuk yesterday.

State police chief Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said the 56-year-old suspect was arrested at about 12.55am yesterday by a team from the Hilir Perak district police Narcotics Criminal Investigation Division.

“Checks on the suspect led to the discovery of two gunny sacks containing drugs believed to be syabu weighing 29 kilogrammes (kg) worth RM1.74 million.

“Following interrogations it was found that the unemployed man has allegedly been using a small boat to meet individuals in the middle of the sea to export drugs to Indonesia. The drugs can be supplied to about 300,000 addicts,” he told a press conference here today.
