Most of the alcohol confiscated from the scene appears to be hard liquor such as whiskey, cognac and scotch. The officers learnt that the alcohol was supposed to be sent to the northern and eastern parts of Malaysia including Perak, Penang, Kedah and Kuantan to be sold to unsuspecting consumers but luckily they managed to intercept it.

mStar reported that the syndicate was selling used bottles, which were refilled with fake alcohol, then repackaged and sold at high prices to consumers. No arrests have been made so far, but the police are currently investigating the case.
