According to director of Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Bukit Aman, Datuk Seri Abd Jalil, for the weaponry, two case investigations have been opened under Section 8 (a) and Section 36 Arms Act 1960, while the drugs were being investigated under Section 12 (3) Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

The suspects have been remanded since Tuesday until tomorrow (25 September).

The officers are being investigated by PDRM for abuse of power and embezzlement.

The case in which they were involved with happened in 2018 when MACC allegedly took the money found in the condominium while investigating an individual for (ironically) abuse of power and embezzlement.

After the individual was given a discharge not accounting to acquittal by the court, the individual proceeded to retrieve the money taken by MACC, but was shocked to find out that some of the amount returned were fake bills.
