This is the largest amount of drugs seized since 1996.  

Mohmad Salleh, Director of the Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department (NCID) under the Royal Malaysian Police, said the drug was seized when police detected a drug processing factory in Bukit Tengah. 

The case was discovered following the arrest of two men and a woman in Pengkalah Hulu, Prak state on September 10.

The drug production gang was led by a local man who has relations with gangs in foreign countries, including Thailand and China, according to Mohmad.-VNA
