KUANTAN, June 30 -- The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (APMM) over the weekend detained eight men believed to have been using the waterways for drug distribution activity in Rompin district. 

Pahang APMM director Marine First Admiral Amran Daud said the suspects were aged between 25 and 49, with four of them nabbed on a fibre boat along the Endau estuary. 

“We found drugs believed to syabu packed in two packages, weighing 238.5 grammes and also RM3,350 in cash," he told reporters at the APMM office here today.
