Customs and Excise officials have arrested a Malaysian citizen, Mohd. Faiz bin Rahman, 29, who was found to be in possession of 7,000 nimetazepam pills, popularly known as '€œHappy Five'€, shortly after arriving at Kualanamu International Airport in Deli Serdang regency, North Sumatra, on Thursday.

Ahmad Fathoni, the Customs and Excise Office'€™s head of investigation and law enforcement at the airport, said the office had handed over both the suspect and evidence to the North Sumatra Police for further investigation.

'€œThe suspect is undergoing questioning by the North Sumatra Police to reveal the possible involvement of other suspects in the case,'€ Ahmad said.

Mohd Faiz, a Kuala Lumpur resident, was arrested by the Kualanamu Airport'€™s Customs and Excise officials who became suspicious there were drugs hidden in his luggage during an X-ray. The officers later discovered 7,000 nimetazepam pills in the suitcase. (ebf)
