At a press conference on Friday at the Federal Territory Customs Complex in Kelana Jaya, Zulkarnain said that after checking the 20 boxes, “four of the boxes were found with white-coloured compact packets wrapped in clear plastic and suspected to be heroin, in the frozen fruit.”
The woman was taken into custody for investigations under the Dangerous Drugs Act.
