Police have been undercover investigating alcohol smuggling in Klang since September, at 2 locations at Taman Sentosa this month at 5pm on September 21 and 11 am on September 22.

Selangor Chief Inspector Datuk Azunaidi held the meeting this afternoon in the company of Assistant Commissioner Tse Hong Fong, Klang South Police District Chief. The 4th Battalion Intelligence Brigade of the Semenyih Police General Administration (PGA) is in Semenyih, the press conference said. During this raid, 48,990 bottles of spirits and 480 bottles of electroplated beer were successfully recovered.

"Police successfully arrested a 58-year-old local man and nine foreign men aged between 22 and 46 in the operation," he said.

Azunaidi disclosed that the group is believed to have been active for half a year and started renting a fenced warehouse three months ago for use as a liquor store.

"It is believed that these bootleg liquors are smuggled in from abroad and then stored in warehouses to be sold in the Klang market."

He pointed out that based on preliminary investigations, all of the arrested suspects were part-time employees hired to manage and tend to bootleg liquor in warehouses.

He said the case was still under investigation and police were looking for the warehouse manager, believed to be the owner, to assist in the investigation.

On the other hand, Azunaidi said that in the second raid, the Bukit Aman Intelligence and Special Investigation Team and the Internal Security and Public Order Bureau, also in another unit, also arrested two foreigners aged 23 and 24. The woman also seized 576 plated beers and 270 boxes of various garden guns.

He said that the police are currently investigating the above two cases under Section 135 (1) (d) of the Customs Act 1967 and Section 8 of the Explosives Act 1957. The suspects were detained by the police for up to 14 days until October 5. day.
