Kaohsiung, June 9 (CNA) Kaohsiung City police arrested two Taiwanese men and nine Vietnamese women late Friday for allegedly using drugs at a shrimping business in the city's Niaosong District.
The city's Police Department said it had received a tip-off that some "foreign-looking women" had been organizing parties in a karaoke-equipped private room at the shrimping spot and that drugs were being used at the parties.
After days of investigation, the police raided the location Friday night and caught 11 suspects doing drugs.
During the raid, the police also seized a bag of ketamine and cigarettes spiked with the drug.
Among the 11 people arrested, nine were Vietnamese women who had been married to Taiwanese men but were now divorced and working as masseuses, the police said.
The women said that drugs were their answer to bad moods, according to the police.
Further investigation of the matter, including the source of the drugs, will be carried out, the police said.
