Nine PDRM officers and a civilian were arrested for distributing drugs in a lock-up at IPD Kota Tinggi on 29 November. Johor Police Chief, Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said the nine officers were aged between 20 to 36 and were of various ranks, from Constable to Corporal.
The civilian arrested is a 23-year-old woman who’s the daughter to one of the inmates in the lock-up known as ‘Datuk Ajim’.
Berita Harian reported that these arrests were made following the action of the Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department (JSJN) Kota Tinggi IPD to make a urine screening test on 16 prisoners from Ulu Choh Prison who were detained in the lockup, on November 22.
From the screening, five inmates were tested positive for methamphetamine. As a result of the police inspections in the lock-up, they managed to seize a number of syabu drugs weighing 38.65 grams worth RM3,865, 42.25 grams of heroin worth RM2,112.50 and some tobacco.
The drug screening also showed that two of the police officers and the civilian also tested positive for methamphetamine. According to Bernama, one of the policeman also has a past criminal record related to gang robbery in 2017.
Ayob added that they have been suspecting that this activity has been happening since November and that the arrested police personnel received a payment of between RM50 to RM1,500 each time the transaction is carried out. This is the first time the arrests have been made as previously no reports were filed.
“We will conduct a thorough investigation and firm action will be taken against any non-supervising officer, who has no accountability aspects. “
Following this incident, senior officers and policemen at the Kota Tinggi District Police Headquarters (IPD) will face stern action, including dismissal.The case is currently being investigated under Section 39B, Section 39A(1), Section 6, and Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
