Penang police have crippled a syndicate distributing heroin and ecstasy pills with the seizure of drugs with a street value of RM718,700, as well as an online gambling ring.

The drugs were seized after a police team from the anti-narcotics unit launched two raids in the Seberang Perai area on Saturday and also arrested a man.

Penang police chief Datuk Comm T. Narenasagaran said police from the Crime Investigation Department apprehended 11 men and five women who are all Indonesian nationals and busted an illegal online gambling syndicate on Friday.
