Tumpat: A woman whose story was spread while rummaging in a trash can with her child to find recycled items, was arrested by the National Anti-Drug Agency (AADK) at her house in Kampung Baru Nelayan, here, today.
The 36-year-old mother of four was arrested in a raid at 8.30am with her 34-year-old brother.
When arrested, the woman involved in a drug delusion is believed to have taken horse pills.
When met at the Tumpat District AADK Office, the woman was in a state of restlessness and claimed ‘milk swelling’ for not breastfeeding her youngest child who was a year and four months old after being arrested.
When asked about the cause of taking the drug, the woman claimed to be suffering from emotional stress and faced many problems causing her to take the shortcut following her husband’s abandonment for more than two years.
“I admit I have been taking horse pills for a long time, but stopped since I was pregnant with my youngest child more than two years ago. However, now I am addicted again due to the stress of life.
“Many problems are faced, including thinking of a husband who has disappeared somewhere, the poverty of life and the surrounding community always looks askance at me and my family,” he said, adding that buying horse pills from the sale of scrap metal was found in the bin.
The story of the woman was previously contagious when she was seen rummaging through a pile of rubbish with some of her children to find recycled items in Kampung Baru Nelayan, Tumpat, last month.
Following that, many parties came forward to provide assistance including the Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Food Industry, Datuk Che Abdullah Mat Nawi, besides also receiving assistance from the Social Welfare Department (JKM).
Meanwhile, Tumpat District AADK Chief Officer, Siti Morni Mustafa said, the raid was carried out in conjunction with Op Prevention under National Level Anti-Drug Day and during the operation, four addicts were detained.
He said the three men and a woman aged between 20s and 40s were detained in Tumpat town, Pengkalan Kubor and Wakaf Bharu.
“A total of 10 members led by myself to the location were identified and the four individuals were detained at their respective homes.
“Screening tests were conducted to find that all those who were detained were positive for methampethamine and were still under the influence of drugs when arrested this morning,” he said.
Siti Morni said the three men, including a recurring arrest, were detained for investigation under Section 3 (1) of the Drug Addicts (Treatment and Rehabilitation) Act 1983.
According to him, the woman is being investigated under Section 8 (3) (a) of the Drug Addicts (Treatment & Rehabilitation) Act 1983 and all those detained will undergo rehabilitation treatment at a drug rehabilitation center.
