Law enforcement officials yesterday touted several arrests in connection with illegal drug possession that they had made in the past few days.
Taichung police said they acted on tip-offs and surveillance and arrested two couples for alleged drug possession.
Police officers last week raided the home of a husband and wife in Taichung’s Wurih District (烏日), where they found seven pouches containing about 5.6g of heroin.
The couple used to live at another location in the city, but they moved to a rented apartment in Wurih, as the husband was on the run after being sentenced to nine months in prison for drug use, police said. [FULL STORY]
