Two separate groups in Macao allegedly involved in drug trafficking, packaging and consumption were taken down by local police, with five suspects being arrested, the Macao Daily Times reported on Saturday.

Police took action after locating a specific woman who was suspected of selling drugs to some nearby night-time parlours on Thursday night, according to the daily. The suspect was not found carrying the drugs at that time, but were later found out at the apartment where she lived. Another two women who were dwelling at the same apartment were also arrested for alleged involvement in drug trafficking.

In the apartment, the police found various types of drugs, including 139 tablets of Yaba, 42 grams of Ice, 11 grams of Cannabis, five Ecstasy and three "Give me five" tablets, with a total street value worth around 60,000 patacas (7,595 U.S. dollars), according to the daily. Some drug packaging and consuming tools were also found in the apartment for which the officials believed the suspects not only sold drugs but also offered the place for customers to consume the drugs.

The three suspects surnamed Lee, Ki and Yang, are aged between 46 to 51 years. Ki, 46, and a Macao resident, was believed to be the mastermind of the drug deal, police said, while the other two were from Jiangsu and Hubei provinces in the Chinese mainland.

The three had confessed to conducting drug trafficking related activities, the daily quoted Macao's Judiciary Police spokesperson Chan Kin Hong as saying.

Another special investigative action on Thursday night by the police saw two youths suspected of selling and consuming drugs arrested. The suspects surnamed Chan and Wong are both 19 years old.

The police caught one of the dual red-handed in the street, who was carrying eight "Give me five" tablets and seven grams of Ketamine. Later in the suspect's apartment, police arrested the other and found more drugs including eight grams of Ketamine, 40 "Give me five" tablets, and two Cannabis cigarettes, according to the daily.

The spokesperson said the two admitted the drugs were purchased from the mainland and claimed that the drugs were mainly for self-consumption.
