Man and pregnant woman high on drugs in a bush busted

KUALA LUMPUR - A couple's drug fix was cut short when they were busted by authorities in a bush near the PPR Sri Semarak in Setapak here.

It is learnt that the 30-year-old woman, who is two months pregnant, and her boyfriend were caught red-handed at about 6pm on Wednesday.

"The woman works as a taxi driver. At the time of the bust, they were high on a drug believed to be syabu," said a source.

"Checks found that they are not married and the man also works as a taxi driver."

The two were among 44 people who were arrested during a week-long joint anti-drug operation by the National Anti-Drugs Agency (AADK), Voluntary Patrol Scheme and police. They are aged between 20 and 50.

AADK deputy director-general Izhar Abu Talib said four of them were small-time pushers. He said 30 of them tested positive and were sent to a rehabilitation centre while another 10 had been released.

He said the pushers had been handed over to the police.

"We also seized various types of drugs worth RM3,000 (S$1,136) during the period," he said at a press conference at the PPR Sungai Bunos here yesterday.

The authorities seized 45 packets of heroine and three packets of syabu.
