60-year-old Suspected Trafficker Arrested in North Bridge Road
In one of the cases in this latest island-wide operation, CNB officers observed two drugs abusers visiting a suspected trafficker. Our officers moved in and a search of the unit of the 60-year-old male Singaporean recovered about 2.15g of ‘Ice’, about 82.8g of heroin and some drug paraphernalia. Investigations into the drug activities of the three suspects involved in this case are ongoing.
CNB is committed to keeping the streets of Singapore safe from drugs. CNB will continue to mount sustained operations against drug traffickers and abusers alike, to reaffirm our stance of zero tolerance for drugs.
