Serian: Tindakan seorang lelaki berpatah balik apabila melihat sekatan jalan raya di simpang Bandar Mutiara berdekatan Kompleks Kastam Imigresen dan Kuarantin (KIK) Tebedu, di sini, membawa penemuan sejumlah dadah dianggarkan bernilai RM1.29 juta, Sabtu lalu.

Pesuruhjaya Polis Sarawak, Datuk Aidi Ismail berkata, dalam kejadian kira-kira 5 pagi, anggota polis bertindak mengejar kenderaan pelbagai guna (MPV) dipandu suspek selepas didapati dalam keadaan mencurigakan.

Menurutnya, cubaan lelaki itu untuk melarikan diri tidak berjaya apabila dia berjaya ditahan di Kampung Sejijak di Kilometer 8, Jalan Tebedu-Serian, di sini.

“Pemeriksaan badan terhadap lelaki berkenaan tidak menemui sebarang kesalahan dan anggota kemudian memeriksa kenderaan yang dipandunya.

“Hasil pemeriksaan menemui dua beg galas di tempat duduk bahagian tengah dan dua lagi beg galas di bahagian bawah tempat duduk belakang kenderaan,” katanya pada sidang media di Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah (IPD) Serian, di sini, hari ini.

Aidi berkata, pemeriksaan lanjut di dalam empat beg berkenaan menemui dadah jenis syabu yang keseluruhannya seberat 36 kilogram yang dipercayai cuba diseludup ke negara jiran.

Menurutnya, berikutan itu penganggur berusia 48 tahun terbabit ditahan dan saringan ujian air kencing juga mendapati suspek turut positif dadah.

Katanya, semakan turut mendapati suspek mempunyai rekod jenayah berkaitan dadah.

“Suspek direman selama tujuh hari sehingga 25 September ini untuk siasatan mengikut Seksyen 39B dan Seksyen 15(1)(a) Akta Dadah Berbahaya 1952.

“Susulan penahanan lelaki itu, polis meletakkan elemen narkotik di setiap sekatan jalan raya dalam Ops Benteng dalam usaha menyekat serta melumpuhkan aktiviti pengedaran dadah,” katanya.
