GEORGE TOWN, Oct 21 -- The discovery of two hand grenades and 689 bullets in a fire hydrant storage room at an apartment in Bukit Dumbar here yesterday was made following information received from a drug trafficker who is now in police custody.

Timur Laut district police chief  ACP Che Zaimani Che Awang said the 54-year-old man who was detained on Oct 1 was awaiting trial under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

"The man, who had nine previous criminal records for drugs told the police that there were bombs and a number of bullets in a fire hydrant storage room located in front of his unit at the apartment," he said here today.

Che Zaimani said based on the information, a team from the Penang Contingent Narcotics Criminal Investigation Department went to the scene and found the grenades, bullets and three magazines in the room.
