Officers from the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) recently arrested 104 suspected drug offenders in an islandwide operation that ran from Jul. 12 to 16.
Some areas covered in this operation include Ang Mo Kio, Geylang, Punggol, Simei and Yishun.
More than S$198,000 worth of drugs including "ice", "ecstasy", heroin and new psychoactive substances were seized.
According to a press release from CNB, the youngest person arrested was a 16-year-old Singaporean male suspected drug abuser.
He, however, wasn't the youngest victim.
Three children found
During the operations, three young children aged five, two and 10 months were found at locations in close proximity to where suspected illegal drug consumption or activities had taken place.
A CNB officer later recounted that he felt moved when he found the 10-month-old baby, who was crying.
He was later seen in a photo carrying the baby with one hand while preparing milk for her.
According to CNB's Facebook post, he said:
"As a father to two daughters, I instinctively knew that the baby needed to drink milk when I saw her crying. It saddens me to see such innocent victims being brought up in such an environment."
The welfare of all three children has been taken care of and they have been placed in the safe custody of their next-of-kin.
