JOHOR BARU, Malaysia: A 45-year-old businessman who had been driving around the city in a luxury car with police insignia and emblems to hoodwink authorities, was arrested - and with drugs in his car.
The man is also on the wanted list for a robbery case in Johor Baru recently.
The Malaysian, with permanent residence status in Singapore and Indonesia, was nabbed near a hotel in Stulang Laut at 5.45pm several days ago.
The man was detained after police found him behaving suspiciously.
Upon checking his Audi Twin Turbo, which had Singaporean number plates, they found the drugs as well as several logos and stickers belonging to the police and other government departments.
It is learnt that the police believed the suspect might have been using the insignia and stickers to fool the authorities.
They are also investigating if he is linked to any drug syndicate in the city. Johor Baru (South) OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Yaakob confirmed his arrest.
"We are also investigating on how he obtained all the paraphernalia used by the police," he said.
