KUCHING: A married couple in their 40s were arrested by the police after various types of drugs worth RM194,976 were found in their apartment at Muara Tabuan yesterday evening.

District police chief ACP Abang Ahmad Abang Julai revealed that Syabu weighing at 613.89 grammes, Erimin 5 (750 tablets / 208.29g) and Ecstacy (140 tablets / 50.18 g) were seized from the couple.

“Both suspects in this case will be investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drug Act 1952 for drug trafficking which carries the death penalty if found guilty,” said Abang Ahmad to a press conference held at the Kuching district police headquarters this morning.

He said that the male suspect, a 45-year-old Sarawakian showed positive result for methamphetamine in his drug test while the female suspect, a 40-year-old Indonesian produced negative result in her drug test.

“The male suspect have also admitted to be selling drugs starting last year. Both suspects have no past criminal records,” he said.

The arrests yesterday, said Abang Ahmad, were conducted by the district’s Narcotics Criminal Investigations Department (NCID) led by Inspector Khairul Faiz Zaini based on a public tip-off.

He added that the NCID team first approached the male suspect at the apartment’s car park where he willingly handed the police a black satchel containing Syabu weighing at 2.1g and 100 tablets of Erimin 5.

Upon further inquiry, the male suspect then led the police to his apartment unit where the remaining drug stash was kept in a room.

At the apartment, police also found the female suspect who was later arrested for the same offence.

Besides the drugs, the police also seized a sedan car and cash money totalling to RM2,000 from the suspects who are currently under a seven-day remand.

Also present at the press conference were Abang Ahmad’s deputies Supt Abang Junaidi Abang Anuar (operations) and Supt Ismail Mahmood (adminstration).
