The seizures came just months after Malaysia reported a record bust of nearly 1.2 tonnes of crystal meth, or shabu as it is locally known, that was disguised as tea in a shipment from Myanmar.
"We found 569.5 kg of what we believe is shabu in the container, valued at 28.47 million ringgit ($6.94 million)," Fuzi told reporters.
Police believe the container was bound for Port Klang, where the shipment was to be split between local distribution and export. Fuzi said they were investigating the source and destination country for export.
Three men aged between 39 and 49 were detained at three locations in Perak in connection with the seizure and have been remanded till Jan. 19 to aid investigations. ($1 = 4.1000 ringgit) (Reporting by Joseph Sipalan)
