Two men have been arrested for drug-related offences in a Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) operation on Dec. 3, 2019.

S$43,000 worth of drugs

A 38-year-old Singaporean male, who is suspected of being a drug trafficker, was found to have multiple varieties of drugs on him.

The drugs, which are estimated to be worth around S$43,000, included:

  • 385g of ‘ice’
  • 32g of heroin
  • 100 of ecstasy tablets
  • 50 Erimin-5 tablets
  • a small amount of cannabis

The amount of ice found on the suspect would also be able to feed the addiction of about 220 drug abusers for a week.

According to a CNB press release, he was arrested after alighting from a private hire car in the vicinity of Bukit Batok West Avenue 5.

The suspect was discovered to also be carrying a bladed weapon.
