KUALA LUMPUR: A couple who turned to crime to save up for their wedding have been nabbed.
It is learnt that they had been struggling with the wedding expenses and resorted to selling drugs for cash.
The 28-year-old Internet cafe employee and his 23-year-old girlfriend, a hair salon employee, were caught distributing ketamine in Sentul and other areas in the Klang Valley.
Sentul police chief Asst Comm Zakaria Pagan said the couple had been doing the rounds since January. They were arrested at 10pm last Thursday following a public tip-off.
“Police stopped a Kia Spectra driven by the woman in Desa Setapak. During the ensuing inspection, we found three bundles of ketamine weighing 3kg worth about RM50,000.
“Initial investigations revealed that the couple distributed the drugs to entertainment outlets and housing areas in the city and Selangor,” he said.
