14th September, 2018


SANDAKAN: More than 23.3 kilogrammes of drugs worth over RM2.5 million seized from 20 districts in the state were destroyed by police at a factory in Jalan Seguntor here.

This was disclosed by Sandakan OCPD ACP Mohd Azhar Hamin during a media conference. He added that the drugs were destroyed upon court orders after related cases were closed.

The assorted types of drugs weighing 23,338.47 grams with a value of RM2,500,206.47 were seized by the narcotics police in cases between 1998 and 2017.

“The drugs consisted of 14.5 kg of syabu, 3.2kg of marijuana, heroin (14.4g), eramin 5 (14.19g), ketamine (171.9g) and the rest were ecstasy, psychotropic drugs, cough syrup, diazepam and paracetamol,” Mohd Azhar said. He added that 7,715 investigation papers from 1998 until 2017 were also being disposed of in the fifth disposal procedure conducted by state Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department.

According to the district police chief, the procedure is done to provide ample storage area in order to ease movement in mobilising court evidences.

“It is also to prevent exhibits from getting spoiled and invite pests such as rats, cockroaches or termites,” he added. Most importantly, it would reduce health hazards to the staff managing the store, adding that the procedure was also one of the ways to audit on seized drugs and exhibits, he said.

“This is the fifth exercise conducted by the State Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department to destroy confiscated drugs since 2016,” Mohd Azhar said.
