KUALA LUMPUR – The police are actively tracking down the distribution of drugs using food delivery services during the implementation of the Movement Control Order 2.0 (MCO 2.0).

Therefore, the Bukit Aman Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department (NCID) is taking proactive approach by placing its members in roadblocks during the MCO to detect food delivery riders who are involved in drug trafficking.

The NCID said that it found that certain syndicates have used the food delivery service riders again to mask their actions and cheat the authorities in sending their supplies to their clients during the MCO.

“Public with information on drugs trafficking may send Whatsapp to the NCID Hotline at 012-2087222 (24 hours operation). The identity of informants will be kept confidential,” said the NCID.

The police revealed that most drug cases involving delivery riders were hidden in packages of other items, including food packages and toys. – MalaysiaGazette
