KOTA KINABALU: Police have arrested 12 including two women in a raid conducted on suspected drug dens around Kampung Sembulan.

City police chief, ACP M Chandra said that four individuals including a married Filipino couple were being investigated under Section 39A(1) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, for possessing 5.5 grams of syabu.

He said three individuals were detained under Section 12(2) of the same act, and four others were detained under Section 15(1)(a) of the same act.

“One individual was arrested under Section 6(1)(c) of the Immigration Act 1959 for not possessing any identification documents,” he said in a statement here yesterday, adding that eight of the suspects did not have identification documents.

According to him, the police have been monitoring the area for a week before carrying out the raid that started at 12.30 am yesterday.
