Marine police foil attempt to smuggle in nine protected animals in Muar

MUARThe Muar Region Two Marine Police Force (PPM) has foiled an attempt to smuggle in nine protected animals, including an baby orang utan, all worth RM403,000 at Parit Unas, Parit Jawa near Muar last night.

Region Two PPM commander ACP Paul Khiu Khon Chiang said the success was due to the department’s surveillance work at the Parit Unas Fishermen’s Jetty, from at 8 pm, acting on public information of the smuggling attempt.

After waiting for almost an hour at the jetty, the Muar Region Two PPM Force found a Perodua Alza car approached the jetty and crew from a boat unloaded several containers into it.
