On 22 July 2015, in an operation to apprehend a suspected drug trafficker and his accomplice, the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) seized ‘Ice’ (crystal methamphetamine) estimated to be worth more than S$101,000.

In the afternoon of 22 July 2015, CNB officers arrested a 25-year-old local male suspected drug trafficker in the unit of a HDB block in Marine Terrace.  The 25-year-old male was then led to his motorcycle parked in the vicinity, where a search of the motorcycle found two bundles of ‘Ice’, weighing about 560g, in a hidden compartment under the seat of the motorcycle. 

From swift follow-up investigations, CNB officers arrested a 28-year-old local male suspected accomplice of the 25-year-old, in the vicinity of Kallang Avenue. 

Investigations into the drug trafficking activities of both men are ongoing.  The Misuse of Drugs Act provides for the death penalty if the amount of methamphetamine trafficked exceeds 250g.  250g of methamphetamine is sufficient to feed the addiction of about 185 abusers for a week[1].
