Poly-drug Trafficker Arrested in River Valley
In one of the cases in this latest island-wide operation, CNB officers arrested a suspected poly-drug trafficker who was dealing in a cocktail of controlled drugs. On the night of 6 July 2015, CNB officers deployed in the vicinity of River Valley Close arrested a suspected drug trafficker at a carpark in the area. A search on the 31-year-old male Singaporean recovered a small amount of ‘Ice’ and 100 ‘Ecstasy’ tablets. The 31-year-old male was brought to the unit he rented at a private apartment in the area and within the unit, CNB officers arrested a 21-year-old female Singaporean suspected drug abuser. A search of the female’s belongings recovered a small amount of ‘Ice’ and cannabis and two ‘Ecstasy’ tablets.
A subsequent search of the unit recovered about 58g of ‘Ice’, 80 ‘Ecstasy’ tablets, 10 Erimin-5 tablets, 18 LSD stamps and two improvised drug-smoking apparatus. Investigations into the drug activities of both suspects are ongoing.
