In an operation conducted by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) on 27 September 2018, drugs estimated to be worth more than S$162,000 were seized and six suspected drug offenders, all Singaporeans, were arrested.
2 In the evening hours of 27 September 2018, CNB officers were deployed in Tuas Industrial Estate to look out for a group of suspected drug traffickers. At about 7.20pm, officers spotted three suspects arriving at the location in a blue Suzuki. A while later, a white Volkswagen was also spotted arriving at the location. Officers observed the rear passenger of the blue Suzuki – a 21-year-old male - approaching the white Volkswagen. After the contact, the white car drove away from the area and the 21-year-old male suspect returned to the blue Suzuki.
3 Officers moved in swiftly and arrested the three suspects in the blue Suzuki – the 21-year-old rear passenger and two other males aged 20 and 21. About 11kg of cannabis and 31 LSD stamps were recovered from the Suzuki.
