TAWAU: Four local drug pushers have been nabbed by anti narcotics police as a deal was going down near a hotel here Saturday.

The suspects aged between 31 and 61 including a pair of siblings from Penampang, had 3,870gm of syabu with a street value of RM260,900.

District police chief ACP Fadil Marsus, the drug dealers were distributing drugs for the district when they were arrested.

Police got wind of the drug dealing and staked out near the hotel. The first suspect was apprehended in the hotel lobby at about 10.30pm.

The other three men were caught outside the hotel and two in a car, he said.

“We found a hotel keycard on the first suspect and he led us to the room when we found a plastic bag kept inside the cupboard,” he said.

Four packs of Chinese tea-brand ‘Guanyinwang’ were wrapped inside but the contents were drugs, he said, adding that a Toyota Land Cruiser, Toyota Hilux and a MyVi were seized at the scene.

According to him, one of the suspects is a local Tawau man with the rest from Penampang.

“They are not drug users as their urine tested negative, but one of the suspects has a drug possession record and the rest are clean,” Fadil said.

Police have obtained a remand order on the men who are being investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drug Act 1952 for drug trafficking.
