A 53-year-old doctor is among five people arrested for the illegal manufacture and sale of cough mixture to drug dependants this week.
About RM500,00 worth of medical preparations and designer drugs have also been seized.
The group’s activities were uncovered when police arrested a man and a woman in Subang Jaya on Tuesday after finding 10 bottles of cough mixture and 400 Eramine 5 pills in the car they were in.
Selangor deputy police chief Senior Asst Comm I Datuk Jamshah Mustapha said police raided a private clinic in Klang the same day and arrested the doctor and his two assistants.
Police seized various medical preparations and food colouring from the clinic.
Initial investigations indicated that the clinic was used as a lab to make and sell cough mixture.
“Later, the doctor led us to his house in Klang where we recovered more medical preparations and RM58,000 cash,” SAC Jamshah told a press conference yesterday.
The cough mixture and drugs were sold throughout the Klang Valley.
The doctor and the four others, in their 20s, have been remanded until March 19 to facilitate investigations.
In an unrelated incident, police arrested a 28-year-old masseur and seized RM65,000 worth of ketamine and Eramine 5 pills in his house at Cheras on Thursday.
