From The Star 6 May 2009:
RM1.6mil pills found during raid on home
JOHOR BARU: Police arrested a member of a drug-trafficking syndicate and seized 108,250 Eramin 5 pills with an estimated street value of RM1.6mil.
The pills, which can be sold for RM15 each, are believed to be for the local market as well as neighbouring countries.
Acting on a tip-off, police raided a house used as a drug storage facility in Taman Puteri Wangsa at 3am on April 30 and arrested a 33-year-old man after finding the pills.
“The suspect had been jailed six months for a drug charge in 2004. This shows he never learnt his lesson,” Johor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff told a press conference yesterday.
He did not rule out the possibility that more arrests would be made.
