KUALA LUMPUR: Police detained two local men and two foreigners who had stocked up duty not paid contraband alcohol at a business premises.
Sentul police chief ACP Beh Eng Lai said the four men, aged between 25 and 41, were detained by the Batallion 4 General Operations Force and assisted by police officers from the Sentul police headquarters, at a business premises in Bamboo Garden, Jalan Ipoh, Sentul, at 1.55 pm on Saturday.
