The anti-narcotics police team confirmed that they’ve arrested an actress of a soon-to-be released local drama serial and 3 others in Damansara about 10 days ago after 30kgs worth of ganja was found in a raid.
The teenage actress, a student of a private college, was with a 22-year-old man who is believed to be her boyfriend as well as 2 other male youths aged 19 and 20, said to be her college mates.
A district anti-narcotics police team seized the drugs which is said to have a street value of several hundred thousand ringgit and detained all 4 suspects. As at time of writing, the identities of the suspects were not revealed.
Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Mohd Zaini Che Din confirmed the arrests and said that the suspects were under a remand order for investigations. However, he declined further comment.
According to a The Sun report, citing unnamed sources, initial investigations revealed that the drug ring allegedly led by the oldest suspect supplied the ganja to college students. The main suspect of the ring is believed to be a close relative of a political aide of a minister.
The case is classified under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act which carries the death sentence upon conviction.
The actress, who made her debut with the serial, is expected to miss the launch of the drama which is said to be next month.
