KUALA LUMPUR (Malaysia) – A lecturer at a local university and a jobless man have been arrested by police for allegedly pushing drugs in the city over the past few months.
Following the two arrests earlier today, police personnel seized 1.38kg of cannabis, 3.3grams of ecstasy powder and 10 ecstasy pills worth more than RM7,000 ($1,719) as well as RM2,000 ($491) in cash.
The 31-year-old lecturer from a university in Selangor was nabbed in the Jalan Pahang area at about 10.30pm following the arrest of a 19-year-old man by the roadside in Kuchai Maju at 2pm.
Police personnel seized a transparent plastic package suspected to contain MDMA from the youth who had obtained the drugs from the dark web.
The Assistant Commissioner of Police added that the youth had been dealing in drugs for about seven months and said that his urine tested positive for cannabis.
He also said that the suspects have been remanded for seven days from today for investigation under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, which carries the death penalty on conviction.
