Six HK residents among those held in Shenzhen drug bust

Police have smashed two cross-border drug trafficking gangs in Guangdong, local public security authority says. Among those arrested were six Hong Kong residents and one Malaysian national. Police seized 50kg of ketamine, 5kg of heroin and 50kg of 'ice' and arrested nine people at an apartment in Shenzhen's Luohu district, a Shenzhen Municipal Public Security Bureau spokesman said yesterday. On March 7, police seized 10kg of ice, 2.2kg of Ecstasy and apprehended three Hong Kong residents and a Malaysian in the city's Futian district. The four were alleged to be buying drugs from mainland suppliers to sell in Malaysia. About 4 million yuan (HK$4.42 million) in a Hong Kong account under the name of the Malaysian man, Chen Lin-chong, was later frozen by police. Yesterday, the bureau destroyed 1,329kg of drugs worth an estimated 400 million yuan at the Nanshan waste incineration plant.
