4Kg Cannabis Seized, Four Arrested

15 Dec 2018

            In an operation conducted by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) on 14 December 2018, a total of about 4kg of cannabis, 92g of ‘Ice’ and 56g of new psychoactive substances (NPS) were seized and four suspected drug offenders arrested.

          In the afternoon of 14 December, CNB officers were deployed in the vicinity of Hougang Avenue 7 and followed a 31-year-old Singaporean male to a medical facility in the vicinity of Keng Lee Road. The suspect was seen meeting up with a 26-year-old Singaporean male and a 24-year-old Malaysian male suspect. Shortly after, the 26-year-old Singaporean departed in a taxi, while the 31-year-old Singaporean and the 24-year-old Malaysian left the medical facility together in a Malaysia-registered car.


3          At an opportune moment, CNB officers from the Special Task Force intercepted the Malaysia-registered car along Keng Lee Road and moved in to arrest the 2 suspects.  A total of about 1.88kg of cannabis was recovered from within the car.  The drugs were placed on the front passenger seat floorboard, where the 31-year-old Singaporean was seated.  Cash amounting to S$1,100 was recovered from the 24-year-old Malaysian.  Officers proceeded to raid the residential unit of the 31-year-old Singaporean in Hougang.  From within the unit, another 2.13kg of cannabis, 92g of ‘Ice’ and 56g of NPS were recovered.
