Hong Kong customs arrested two people in recent days for alleged drug trafficking after suspected ketamine and ecstasy was found in air parcels.

Customs officers seized about two kilograms of suspected ketamine and about 7,000 tablets of ecstasy with an estimated market value of about HK$1.9 million (over US$242,000) at Hong Kong International Airport on March 16 and March 22 respectively, according to a government release.

On March 16, the customs officers inspected an air consignment from Germany and found about two kilograms of suspected ketamine.

Six days later, they inspected another air consignment, also from Germany and found about 7,000 tablets of ecstasy. The amount is the department’s largest seizure of suspected ecstasy in 10 years.

However, no one picked up the parcels, which were sent to a commercial building in Kowloon’s Tsim Sha Tsui, until May 2 when a 56-year-old foreign man, said to be a businessman collected the parcel, Oriental Daily reported.

The customs officers arrested the male suspect.

Meanwhile, a 30-year-old unemployed foreign woman was arrested in Jordan, Kowloon.

An investigation is continuing and the law enforcers will further probe the relationship between the two suspects and whether any triad gang may be involved.
