Drug trafficker millionaire held

IPOH - A man who is believed to have made a fortune from his illicit drug business has been nabbed here and his personal belongings worth RM1.2mil (S$470,000), which included two houses and several cars, have been seized.

The seizures were made in separate raids at Kampung Rapat here over the weekend.

The suspect, in his 30s, was believed to have processed and trafficked drugs that had fetched about RM4mil over the past 10 months.

However, no drugs were found at his two houses during the raids on Nov 16 and Nov 17.

"We believe he has sold off all the drugs after processing them," Perak narcotics chief Asst Comm Roslan Abdul Wahid said at a press conference here yesterday.

The man was arrested under Section 3 (1) of the Dangerous Drugs (Special Preventive Measures) Act 1985 in the first raid at one of the houses at about 2.30pm on Saturday.

The seizures made were a Mercedes Benz CLS, a Toyota Caldina, a Honda Odyssey, an Isuzu D-Max and a motorcycle as well as some jewellery.

The next day, the police raided the suspect's other house and seized two Proton Perdana and his bank book.
