Dozens of packages of suspected amphetamines and regulated substances were found
on the Ching Chuan Kang Air Base in Taichung, but an ongoing base-wide drug test has not identified any drug users.
Base patrol officers on Monday found 27 packages containing powdery and crystal substances and drug paraphernalia, the Ministry of National Defense said.
A preliminary analysis showed that the substances might be amphetamines and ketamine.
There are about 3,000 enlisted personnel and officers on the base, and 1,200 had taken urine tests as of yesterday, with 10 people initially testing positive, the base’s Political Warfare Office director Colonel Shih Sheng-te (施勝德) said yesterday. [FULL STORY]
