Macao police has announced the arrest of two local men on suspicion of selling drugs to casino and nightclub workers and revelers, the Macao Post Daily reported on Thursday.

The newspaper quoted a spokesperson of the Judiciary Police of Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) as saying that the two suspects were nabbed on Tuesday at the Barrier Gate Square with some 16 grams of ketamine.

Police believed the duo, a 22-year-old unemployed resident and a 21-year-old cook, had started smuggling drugs from Zhuhai to Macao about one month ago, bring contraband over the border every few days over this period.

The police were acting on a tip-off that two men were smuggling the drugs across the border.

The purchase price of a range of recreational drugs is comparatively cheap in Zhuhai compared to Macao, attracting smugglers to the trade who see a quick buck to be made selling to cashed-up tourists and locals alike out for a "good time" in Macao, according to the police.

The two suspects have been transferred to the Public Prosecution (MP) for further investigation and will possibly face drug-trafficking charges, the spokesperson said.
