4 shipments of ‘courier’ drugs intercepted within a week

KUALA LUMPUR - Drug trafficking syndicates appear to be opting for courier services following the discovery of four shipments within a week.

Federal Narcotic Crime Inves­tigation Department director Comm Datuk Seri Noor Rashid said they had intercepted the shipments of syabu which were brought in via two courier services here.

"On Nov 7, we visited a courier service company in Petaling Jaya based on intelligence gathered.

"We checked a shipment which contained a sealing cutting machine rubber roller," he said in Bukit Aman yesterday.

He said the roller contained 2.5kg of drugs believed to be syabu.

"We also checked another package containing bicycle parts and found 1.9kg of the same type of drugs hidden inside the sponge of three bicycle seats," he said.

He said they visited another courier service company on Monday and found more drugs hidden in two different shipments.

"All four shipments came from a company in Guandong, China," he said, adding that police believe a Nigerian drug smuggling syndicate was in operation there now.
