While pro-democracy demonstrations continue in the former British colony, which have been accused of being a political virus to be eradicated, local authorities have been forced to intervene to clean up own ranks by arresting four agents within a week, involved in domestic violence, gambling, and detention of large quantities of drugs.
The station sergeant was part of a team that last week confiscated 296 kg of crystal meth worth 159 million Hong Kong dollars. According to local authorities, this has been the largest drug seizure since 1991, which is when the authorities began keeping track of the confiscations.
The man was found with two kgs of ice and other substances including cocaine in a room in the Royal Garden Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui East on Tuesday.
During the operation, a 29-year-old woman and a 43-year-old man were also arrested by the Mong Kok special squad.
All three were arrested on suspicion of trafficking in dangerous drugs, an accusation that can lead to life imprisonment.
According to a police source, the arrest triggered further investigations to see if the 2kg seized in the man’s room were part of the massive haul of the previous week.
Two other policemen were arrested on Monday evening during an operation against gambling, banned in Hong Kong.
Last Friday another 41-year-old policeman was arrested and suspended from duty after a video of him abusing his son went viral online.
