Customs foils bids to smuggle RM2.8m drugs at KLIA
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 1 — Customs officers yesterday foiled bids to smuggle RM2.8 million worth of drugs at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
They found ketamine in three suitcases of passengers arriving on a flight from Jakarta at 12.30am.
The drug was hidden in packets of cereals in the bags, and was spotted when the luggage went though the scanning machine.
Customs Narcotics Branch deputy director Liah Omar said the drug, weighing 30kg, was worth RM300,000, Bernama Online reported.
Two men and a woman aged between 30 and 40 were subsequently detained.
In the second incident, Customs found Ecstasy bills in a box from Hong Kong with the tag “Green Tea” which it sent to the Health Department for an import approval check. The pills were worth RM2.5 million.
