Five international drug trafficking syndicates were busted by police with the arrest of six people including three women.

Federal narcotics CID director, Datuk Noor Rashid Ibrahim said authorities also seized drugs valued at 2.7 million ringgit including 1.5 kilogrammes of liquid cocaine and almost 10 kilogrammes of syabu.

He also said police believed the syndicates had recruited people in third world countries as drug mules.

The first arrest was made on October 27, when a Bolivian man was found with 36 capsules of liquid cocaine, weighing 1.5 kilogrammes, in his stomoch during a body scan by authorities upon his arrival at the KLIA Airport from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

On October 30, a Vietnamese woman was detained with 1.32 kilogrammes of syabu hidden in her luggage at the LCCT and a Cambodian woman was nabbed at the Kuantan airport with three kilogrammes of syabu found in a secret compartment in her bag.

While in Ampang yesterday, two Nigerian men were held with almost two kilogrammes of syabu at a shopping complex parking lot.

Police also detained another Vietnamese woman at a hotel in Kepong on the same day and seized 3.57 kilogrammes of syabu from her.

All those detained, aged between 25 and 41, have been remanded to facilitate investigations under the Dangerous Drugs Act.
