Following the largest drug bust to in Turkey’s history in which police seized 2.55 million tablets of ecstasy, another major drug bust has taken place this week in Malaysia.
Malaysia’s Special Tactical Intelligence Narcotics Group (or STING) conducted the nine-hour operation took place on October 31, seizing equipment meant for large scale drug production, 51,750 pressed pills and 227.6kg of ecstasy in its powdered form.
It has been estimated that the drug syndicate could have likely produced 1.2 million pills with the equipment and chemical compounds found at the drug lab.
Seven people were arrested during the operation which took place at six different sites scattered around Johor Bahru.
What will Malaysian officials decide what to do with all those pills? Maybe they can take a page out of artist Chemical X's book and make some art.
