MORE than RM1 million worth of drugs have been seized in a drug bust in southern Sarawak by the police.

State police chief Datuk Aidi Ismail said the seizure was during a police narcotics operation along the Serian-Tebedu district.

According to The Vibes, two suspects – a man and a woman, aged 35 and 38, respectively – were arrested at a roadblock.

The drugs are believed destined for a neighbouring country.

“They were found with 14,880 Ecstasy pills and syabu,” Aidi told reporters in Kuching.

The duo said they were paid to deliver the drugs to Tebedu, bordering Indonesia’s Kalimantan.

Both have been remanded, with investigations being conducted under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, which carries the death sentence.

On Saturday night, a police raid on an entertainment centre in Miri, saw the seizure of 3kg of drugs, stored in packets and bottles hidden in the building.

Two suspects, also a man and a woman, were arrested for investigations under Section 39b of the Dangerous Drugs Act.
