On 15 March 2016, in two separate raids led by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) and supported by the Singapore Police Force, a total of nearly 2kg of cannabis and other drugs were seized, and three suspected drug traffickers arrested. The drugs seized from the two raids were estimated to be worth more than S$64,000.

In the first raid conducted in the afternoon of 15 March 2016, officers raided a unit at Marsiling. Two suspected drug traffickers, both Singaporean males aged 41 and 42, were arrested within the unit. A search of the unit recovered about 940g of cannabis and small amounts of ‘Ice’ and heroin.

In the second raid conducted at Woodlands on the same day, officers arrested a 29-year-old male Singaporean suspected drug trafficker within a unit. A search of the unit recovered about 1kg of cannabis and an assortment of other drugs.

Investigations into the drug activities of all arrested suspects are ongoing. Those convicted of trafficking in more than 500g of cannabis may face the death penalty.
