A sex pill trader turned the tables on a Health Ministry officer when he locked him inside his house.
According to a report by Harian Metro, translated by The Star Online, the Selangor Pharmacy Enforcement Division officer, posing as a buyer, had reportedly gone to the suspect’s house in Cheras on Wednesday to investigate the case.
When the officer stepped inside the house, the 50-year-old suspect reportedly locked the iron-grille door, trapping the officer inside.
The suspect also allegedly threatened to beat the officer up if he tried to seize the pills.
The stand-off reportedly ended about an hour later after the officer called the police to the house.
A police source told the Malay daily that six officers were dispatched to the scene and ordered the suspect to open the door.
The police then proceeded to arrest the suspect and seized the sex drugs, believed to be worth some RM22,000.
The source added that initial investigations revealed that the pills contain a substance used to treat erectile dysfunction, but it could also potentially cause heart attacks.
