Police arrest three over ‘Ecstasy Tea Juice’

The flavoured Chinese Tea with the drug ecstasy seized on Halloween night.

KUCHING, Nov 2: The famous Chinese tea ‘TieGuanYin’ flavoured with orange juice, papaya milk or mango milk flavour has been turned into ‘ecstasy juice’.

Packed in white plastic packets with Chinese and English writings of ‘TeiGuanYin’ Juice and its different flavors, each packet of ‘flavoured Chinese Tea’ infused with the ecstasy drug is sold at RM250 each.

The package is also printed with “Net Wieght: 18g” with the word ‘weight” wrongly spelled as “Wieght”

The special ‘Ecstasy Tea Juice’ was found on Halloween night during a police bust at a car park in front of a condominium in BDC here.

The narcotics police had on Oct 31 at 11.30pm arrested a local 28-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman from China, who were coming out from a black four wheeler parked there.

The 42-year-old driver, who is a contractor and owner of the vehicle, was also arrested.

The police found one Erimin 5 (0.27gram, valued at RM20) inside the first suspect’s bag. Five packets of the said ‘Ecstasy Tea Juice’, totaling 96 grams, were found inside the compartment of the vehicle’s arm rest, said State Narcotics Chief Supt Sahar Abdul Latif.

Initial investigations revealed that the flavoured chinese tea spiked with ecstasy belonged to the driver.

All three suspects had no prior criminal records but tested positive for methamphetamine and ketamin.

Some of the marijuana seized from the lorry driver on Halloween.

Meanwhile, the police also seized over 200 grammes of marijuana in a separate case at Tabuan Jaya here.

The lorry driver was arrested in front of a shoplot at Tabuan Jaya on Oct 31 at around 3.30pm. More drugs were seized from his residence.

Both cases are being investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, which carries the mandatory death sentence upon conviction. — DayakDaily
