4 August 2022


Hong Kong Customs today (August 4) seized about one kilogram of suspected crack cocaine with an estimated market value of about $1.4 million in San Po Kong. A 25-year-old man was arrested.

After the follow-up investigation of a drug trafficking case detected in July, Customs officers today arrested a man suspected to be connected with the case in Kwai Chung and raided a factory unit in San Po Kong rented under his name. The batch of suspected dangerous drugs and a batch of drug packaging paraphernalia were seized therein.

An investigation is ongoing.

Under the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, trafficking in a dangerous drug is a serious offence. The maximum penalty upon conviction is a fine of $5 million and life imprisonment.

Members of the public may report any suspected drug trafficking activities to Customs' 24-hour hotline 2545 6182 or its dedicated crime-reporting email account (crimereport@customs.gov.hk).
