TAWAU: A speedboat trying to smuggle out 10 gas cylinders to a neighbouring country was detained by marine police during “Op Gelora Khas” at Sg Aji Kuning waters at 9pm on Friday.

Sabah Marine Police (Region 4) Commander ACP Mohamad Pajeri Ali said a 27-year-old local man was also arrested for carrying the five Petronas gas cylinders and five MyGazz gas cylinders weighing 16.5kg each.
