Heroin distributor remanded

The Police took into custody a suspect who maintained a heroin distribution centre at a two storey luxurious house at Batuwandera in Piliyandala on Saturday.

Police seized heroin worth nearly Rs. two million from his possession. They also took into custody his car along with a bundle of papers which he used to wrap illicit drugs.

The Police revealed that the suspect had engaged in the illicit business at the house after paying a monthly rent of Rs. 700,000.

During interrogation, the suspect had revealed that he had been distributing illicit drugs that belong to a drug dealer called Rehena in Ratmalana who has been evading police arrest for years.

The suspect was produced before the Mount Lavinia Magistrate on Monday and remanded pending further investigations.

The Mount Lavinia Police Division Vice Squad conducted the raid.
