Three suspects from mainland province Liaoning who allegedly sold illicit drugs to prostitutes in Macau were apprehended by the Judiciary Police (PJ) yesterday.

The narcotics division received a report on Sunday that drug activity would be conducted near a hotel in Nape. Police surveillance was in place afterwards and until midnight the “target” was sighted and then was followed by police to a hotel lobby, PJ spokesman Chan Kin Hong said.

Mr Chan said the man, surnamed Sun, 27, might have noticed he was being followed and thus dropped some tissue papers on the floor before police caught him.

It was found that the tissue papers wrapped two grams of “ice” and 15 pills of “yaba”, which police said came from the mainland and had a street value of 5,000 patacas.

Police raided an apartment in Nape later where another suspect, surnamed Li, 41, was arrested and a large quantity of drug consumption and packaging apparatus were seized, Mr Chan said.

Sun told police he was instructed by Li to bring out the drugs and sell them to prostitutes who looked for businesses in local casinos.

The apartment of Sun was also raided and lots of drug consumption and packaging apparatus were seized.

Mr Chan said a woman, surnamed Wang, 28, was also caught in Sun’s apartment in Nape whom police believed was involved in the drug activities that had been going on for about a month.

The three suspects were all from Liaoning Province, China and had overstayed in Macau.

They were sent to the Public Prosecutions Office and will be charged with drug crimes.
