KUALA LUMPUR - Police arrested a 39-year-old man at his apartment in Kepong here after RM95,000 (S$35,911) worth of drugs were found in his possession.

Sentul OCPD Asst Comm R. Munusamy said the man was arrested at about 3pm on Friday in an anti-drug operation by district police headquarters personnel.
