M’sian Drug Dealers Spike BBT With Ecstasy & Get Caught By Police
Unfortunately, a group of drug dealers in Penang, Malaysia, came up with a totally different take on the trend, albeit a still addictive one.
Ecstasy bubble tea pre-packed for delivery
According to Sin Chew Daily, the drug dealers used cups from famous bubble tea brands to brand their ‘poison milk tea’.
When a customer orders the bubble tea, the drug dealers will communicate through a device to place the order, mix the drinks, and deliver them.
Judging from the pictures, they even separated the drugs into individual sachets to match each bubble tea brand’s taste.
And if you think your regular bubble tea is pricey, these ‘poison milk tea’ drinks cost about S$82 (RM250) per cup.
However, the drug dealers’ shady bubble tea business didn’t last long as the Penang police force later uncovered their operations and arrested them.
Police seized over 131 packets of milk tea powder
In a press conference, officers from Penang police’s drug crime unit shared how they first arrested 2 men in a parked car along a Langkawi slip road on Friday (10 Jan).
The duo were apparently in the midst of mixing their potentially deadly cocktails when the arrest happened.
Later, the police managed to nab another 2 men and 3 women at a condominium in Bukit Tinggi.
Throughout the entire process, they seized over 131 packets of milk tea powder and 27 bottles of spiked drinks.
Apart from the drinks, the police also confiscated 4 cars, 4 handbags, 2 watches and some cash. The confiscated items totalled to about S$153,323 (RM462,250).
Kudos to the police for busting the drug operation
Sin Chew Daily reports that the 7 suspects, aged between 20 to 35, will be detained by the Penang police until Wednesday (15 Jan).
With that said, kudos to the Penang police for catching onto their act so quickly, preventing them from harming even more people with their spiked drinks.
While bubble tea is undoubtedly addictive, ecstasy is an illegal substance and we should not be consuming it. We advise consumers to stick to regular bubble tea.
