88 arrested for illegal drug use

PETALING JAYA: A total of 88 people were arrested for illegal drug use at a family entertainment outlet in Bandar Puchong.

Serdang OCPD Asst Comm Ismadi Borhan said all the 88 people were gathered in a large room with loud music, were so high on drugs that they did not even realise the premises were being raided.

“We arrested four local men, 55 Indonesian men and 29 Indonesian women. Fifty-nine of them did not have any identification documents.

“The group was aged between 18 and 50. Most of them are labourers, cleaners and factory workers,” ACP Ismadi said in a statement on Sunday (July 21).

He added that the police found small amounts of ketamine and ecstacy pills at the premises.

“They tried to deceive law enforcement by using this family entertainment centre for their drug activities. Thankfully, we were able to bust them due to public information,” he said.
