16 Jan 2014

The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested two females who tried to smuggle about 450g of heroin and 52g of “Ice” into Singapore on 15 January 2014.

At about 2.20pm on 15 January 2014, at the car arrival zone of Woodlands Checkpoint, officers from the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) stopped a Malaysian-registered taxi entering Singapore with four passengers and referred them to CNB for checks.

A female CNB officer conducted a search on one of the female Malaysian passengers and found a bundle of heroin hidden in the 28-year-old’s underwear. Another bundle of heroin and smaller bundle of “Ice” were also found hidden in the underwear of another female passenger, a 46-year-old Singaporean, in the same taxi.

In total, about 450g of heroin and 52g of “Ice” were recovered. The drugs seized have a street worth of about S$57,600. Investigations on the two females are on-going.

CNB and the ICA are constantly on the lookout for drug offenders who try ways and means to smuggle drugs into Singapore. We will keep up our enforcement efforts to ensure they do not succeed.
