Li Zhihao, Senior Investigation Officer of the Customs Narcotics Investigation Division, said that the Customs conducted an anti-drug operation in the Cheung Sha Wan area yesterday afternoon and found two men acting suspiciously carrying 10 cardboard boxes near a residential building. A small amount of drugs was found on one of them.
Customs officers found a total of 124 cloth handbags in 10 cardboard boxes, and found a total of 45 kilograms of suspected heroin in the cracks of each handbag.
Customs officers then escorted the two arrested men to a nearby residential unit for search, and a woman just stepped out of the unit.
Customs seized another 1.5 kilograms of suspected cocaine, a small amount of suspected Kazakhs and suspected crack cocaine, and a batch of suspected drug packaging tools in the unit, and arrested the woman.
During the follow-up investigation, Customs found 3 kilograms of suspected heroin, 1.1 kilograms of suspected kaza, 400 grams of suspected crack cocaine and 300 grams of suspected cocaine in a commercial building in Tai Kok Tsui. At the same time, suspected drugs including tools were found. A total of 48 kilograms of heroin, 1.8 kilograms of cocaine, 1.1 kilograms of K-jars and 410 grams of crack cocaine were found during the entire operation, with a market value of 44 million yuan.
It is reported that Customs is still investigating the source of the drugs.
Li Zhihao said that the two residential and commercial units involved in the case have been in operation for several months. It is believed that the drugs are supplied to the West Kowloon area, but the actual locations or places where they will be distributed are still to be investigated.
He pointed out that during the operation, it was found that drug trafficking syndicates used residential and commercial units to store, package and distribute drugs, which is believed to be to spread risks and avoid law enforcement officers from tracing.
The arrested two men and one woman are aged between 22 and 24. The two men reported as truck drivers and porters respectively, and the woman reported as a piano teacher. Customs is investigating her role in the case.
It is understood that the woman involved and one of the arrested men are lovers and live together in a large housing estate in Cheung Sha Wan involved in the case.
The unit covers an area of more than 400 square feet and was rented by one of the arrested men for several months. Among the three arrested men, one of them had previously committed dangerous drug crimes.
