According to Oriental Daily, Kuala Lumpur Police Chief, CP Dato’ Allaudeen, stated that during the operation, the police unexpectedly uncovered that the drug trafficking syndicate had changed the packaging for their drugs.

The methamphetamine packaging bag has switched from the usual “Guan Yin Wang” tea bags to another type of blue tea bag branded “1 one”.

Dato’ Allaudeen mentioned that the police conducted a raid at about 3 p.m. on 19 March in Cheras to arrest a 38-year-old Chinese man.

Following clues provided by the suspect, they cracked down on a kindergarten in Taman Dagang, Selangor.

He said that the police found 213 kilograms of methamphetamine, 90 kilograms of ketamine, and 3 kilograms of high-purity heroin inside the kindergarten.

The preliminary estimate of the drugs’ market value is 10.8 million Malaysian Ringgit, which could supply 826,000 drug users.

“The suspect caught has no prior criminal record and played the role of a ‘runner’ within the group, receiving a payment of 5,000 Malaysian Ringgit per month for his services.”

Dato’ Allaudeen revealed that the drug trafficking syndicate rented the residential unit for 3,000 Malaysian Ringgit per month and disguised it as a kindergarten by posting cartoon patterns outside to avoid police investigation.

The police will summon the property owner to the police station for a statement to assist in the investigation.

He stated that the drug trafficking gang had been active for the past five months. They bought drugs from neighbouring countries and transported them by land from northern Malaysia to the Klang Valley for sale to make huge profits.

He noted that the police are now detaining the suspect under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 for 7 days to assist in the investigation and are tracking whether there are any remaining accomplices still at large.
