KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia Police detained three people, two of them Vietnamese women, for allegedly processing ecstasy in a raid on a house in Pandan Indah, Ampang, near here last Monday.

Ampang Jaya District Police chief ACP Hamzah Alias said the man, in his 40s, who is also believed to be the mastermind, was picked up along with the two foreign women, in their 20s and 60s, in the 2.30 pm raid based on gathered intelligence.

We managed to seize 5,116g of ecstasy powder, 21.4g of ketamine and two slabs of ganja (marijuana) worth RM514,330 in total.

We also seized various drug-processing tools such as blender, pestle and mortar, as well as plastic bags which were used to pack the drugs. We believe that the syndicate had been operating over the past two months, he told a press conference at the Ampang District Police headquarters here today.

Hamzah said all the suspects were being remanded for seven days until Monday to facilitate investigation under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
