Officers conducted three raids on Thursday and Friday following investigations into 14 suspects of a drug smuggling and distribution syndicate who were caught in Johor Bahru on Tuesday, said Johor police chief Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay.
In the initial operation on Tuesday, the Narcotics Crime Investigation Department uncovered two drug processing laboratories and two stores containing drugs worth RM125 million.
"Interrogation of the suspects led police to raid the three other locations which were used to store drugs namely a factory in Taman Mount Austin and two rented houses in Taman Setia Indah," he added.
"The two suspects are on remand for seven days from the date of their arrests and are being investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952," said the police chief.
