“A bodily search carried out on the male suspect found a transparent plastic packet containing crystalline substance suspected to be Syabu weighing 0.35g.
“An electronic key card and house keys were also found on him,” said Hasnir.
Following his arrest, the team was then led to a condominium in Jalan Riam where they detained another female suspect, a 25-year-old Vietnamese.

“Also found was a plastic container containing empty plastic packets believed to be used in packing the drugs,” said Hasnir.
About 1pm on the same day, police detained the fourth suspect, a man, 39, at the condominium’s parking lot.
A search inside the car found a plastic container containing three transparent plastic packets containing crystalline substance, suspected to be Syabu weighing 2.20g.
