Serangoon ‘Ice’ & Erimin-5 Trafficker Arrested

In one of the operations carried out on 12 January 2016, CNB officers arrested a 28-year-old male suspected drug trafficker and a 30-year-old male suspected abuser in Serangoon North. Both are Singaporeans. From the raid, officers recovered a total of 28 Erimin-5 tablets and about 7g of ‘Ice’, packed in numerous small packets. Two digital weighing scales, numerous empty plastic packets and two improvised ‘Ice’ smoking apparatus were also seized. The 28-year-old male will be investigated for drug trafficking.

CNB will continue to keep up the pressure on the ground, through regular island-wide operations and targeted operations to get drug traffickers and abusers alike off the streets of Singapore.
