A Malaysian primary school teacher has been arrested for dealing in drugs as his part-time job.
According to Utusan Borneo, a primary school teacher started selling meth earlier this year because of financial problems.
On 22nd July, the 49-year-old was arrested along with his wife and an Indonesian man in front of a restaurant in Selangau, Sarawak at around 11am.
They were in the car together with their two children, aged 17 and 9 respectively.
Upon inspecting the car, they found 3 small packets of methamphetamine amounting to around 2.85 grams stuffed inside a box of cigarettes.
During the interrogations, the teacher said that he dealt drugs in minimal quantities in the Selangau and Mukah palm oil estates area because of some financial difficulties. He also said that he got his stock from a dealer in Sibu.
Their urine samples tested negative and all 3 adults will be remanded for 4 days to aid in the investigations.
This case will be investigated under Section 12 (3)of the Dangerous Drugs Act of the Penal Code.
