JOHOR BARU: Sex toys and illegal sexual stimulants worth more than RM130,000 were seized in raids at various outlets here and in the Klang Valley.
The raids yesterday were in response to a Malay daily’s report earlier that these items were being sold illegally in certain shopping complexes and that students were frequenting such outlets.
Johor Baru (South) deputy OCPD Supt Zainal Baharom said a team of police personnel and pharmacy enforcement unit officers raided four shops in busy Jalan Wong Ah Fook here and seized more than RM100,000 worth of illegal sexual stimulants and sex toys.
Among the items seized in the raid were vibrators, stimulant pills and “tickling condoms”.
“We carried out surveillance for about four days before raiding these premises,” Supt Zainal said, adding that an illegal sinseh (medicine man) and two shop workers were also detained to facilitate investigations.
In Subang Jaya, Selangor, sex toys worth more than RM20,000 were confiscated during a raid at an outlet in the Summit USJ shopping mall.
The outlet had a licence to sell health products but was selling sex gadgets instead, said Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) secretary Slamat Hamzah.
“The business was found to have contravened the MPSJ 2007 bylaw. They were selling the sex gadgets, which is not allowed under their business licence,” he said.
A team raided the premises at 1.30pm, seized the items and sealed the shop.
A compound of RM1,000 will be issued to the operator, said Slamat, adding that only a worker was in the outlet when the raid took place.
Meanwhile, a team of officials from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), Home Ministry officials and police, led by DBKL deputy director-general (services) Datuk Amin Nordin Abdul Aziz, seized 55 sex toys worth more than RM12,000 from seven outlets in the city.
The team, divided into five groups, simultaneously raided outlets in Sungei Wang Plaza, Berjaya Times Square and Cheras Leisure Mall which were openly selling items like vibrators, dildos, teasers, and vaginal rejuvenators, deemed indecent and offensive.
In one shop, the owner claimed some of the items confiscated were neck massagers and proceeded to demonstrate on Amin Nordin’s neck.
Needless to say, Amin Nordin was not convinced.
“We do not condone the sale of obscene items and will be revoking their licences immediately,” he said.
Polis Malaysia digembar-gemburkan sebagai antara polis yang terbaik di dunia. Sejak dulu lagi saya meragui tanggapan ini, sila lihat semula tulisan merah di atas dan fikirkan …
