Narco police going hard on addicts

11th February, 2019

By JONATHAN NICHOLAS

KOTA KINABALU: Narcotics police are going hard on drug addicts, particularly syabu users, with drug raids conducted in the city on an almost weekly basis.

Sixty people including two women around the ages of 14 to 60 were arrested on various drug offences in the areas of Kampung Sembulan, Kampung Bakau in Likas and at the Padi Board quarters in Inanam.

The three-day raids ending yesterday yielded packets of crystalline substance weighing 20 grams believed to be meth which police say is worth RM3,000 at its maximum street price.

Fifteen illegal immigrants, some of whom were not drug users ,were also picked during in the daylight raids dubbed Ops Sarang, said Kota Kinabalu police Chief ACP Habibi Majinji.

“The operations’ success is based on public information and apart from our pledge to fully stop rampant drug abuse, these raids are to identify players of drug syndicates within the targeted areas.

“Despite light rain, the operations went smoothly with the team of 57 officers from the Karamunsing station, Sabah Contingent and General Operations Force encountering no problems throughout.

“If you have any complaints or information on drug abusers or its pertaining activities do not hesitate to contact your nearest police station and be the change in preventing future crimes,” he said in a statement.
