A sizeable assortment of drugs were seized in an operation conducted by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) on 31 October 2019, which also saw the arrest of two suspected drug traffickers, both 31-year-old Singaporean males. The drugs seized were estimated to be worth about S$53,000.
2 In the afternoon of 31 October, CNB officers arrested a 31-year-old suspected drug trafficker in the vicinity of Bedok Reservoir Road, shortly after the suspect alighted from his car. Officers found about 11g of ‘Ice’ on the suspect. A search of the car found a total of about 4g of ‘Ice’ and other drug paraphernalia, including improvised drug-smoking apparatuses. A subsequent search of the suspect’s residential unit in the same vicinity found a digital weighing scale.
3 From swift follow-up investigations, CNB officers raided a unit located at Lorong 15 Geylang. Forced entry was effected as the occupant within refused to comply with lawful orders given by the officers. From within the unit, officers found about 55g of ketamine, 444g of ‘Ice’, three ‘Yaba’ tablets, 102 Erimin-5 tablets and 107 ‘Ecstasy’ tablets. Some of the ‘Ice’ recovered from the unit were pink-coloured.

4 Investigations into the drug activities of the two suspects are ongoing. 459g of ‘Ice’ is enough to feed the addiction of about 262 abusers for a week.
