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 'Happy 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.
'The 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)
