The Malaysian police have arrested the Singaporean said to be responsible for distributing drugs using a drone from Singapore to Johor Baru.
This followed the arrest of four of his compatriots, including a woman, by the Singapore police a couple of days ago.
Federal Narcotic Crime Investigation Department (NCID) director Comm Datuk Ramli Din said the suspect, known as Boy Setan, was nabbed on Tuesday (June 23) morning.
“Boy Setan was responsible for distributing drugs via a drone from Kranji, Singapore, to Johor Baru and has been arrested this morning.
“Congratulations Johor NCID,” he said in a tweet on Tuesday afternoon.
It was earlier reported that police were looking for a Singaporean man, known as “Boy Setan”, for allegedly smuggling drugs from the island republic using a drone.
Johor police chief Comm Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay had said on Monday (June 22) that “Boy Setan” was 40-year-old Mohamad Azli Ahmad Said and that he was also wanted by their Singapore counterparts for drug offences.
He also said it was the first time that the police had come across a drone being used to smuggle drugs between two locations.
