Ten people, including four teenage girls who were partying, had a rude shock when police raided their hotel room here early this morning in Butterworth.
Police had visited the hotel at 1.15am to check on standard operating procedure during the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) period.
They found the group, aged between 15 and 23, partying in one of the rooms.
Seberang Prai Utara district police chief Assistant Commissioner Noorzainy Mohd Noor said the group of friends were believed to have organised the party beforehand.
“Urine test conducted on five of the men came back positive for drugs. The teen girls, who were minors and not schooling, did not test positive.
“They have all been detained to assist investigations into the case,” he said.
Noorzainy said each of them was also issued with a RM1,000 compound for violating the CMCO SOP.
He said the five men, whose urine tests were positive, were being probed under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952. Nst
