- On 13 October 2017 at about 8pm, officers from the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) directed an arriving Malaysia-registered car for further checks at the Woodlands Checkpoint. It was driven by a lone 23-year-old female Malaysian.
- In the course of checks, an ICA officer detected one bundle inside the rear passenger seat cup holder, later found to contain a total of about 208g of ‘Ice’, estimated to be worth more than S$20,000. The woman was placed under arrest and the case was handed over to the Central Narcotics Bureau for further investigations.

- Our borders are our first line of defence in safeguarding Singapore's security, and security checks are critical to our nation’s security. The Home Team agencies will continue to conduct checks on passengers and vehicles at the checkpoints to prevent attempts to smuggle in undesirable persons, drugs, weapons, explosives and other contrabands.
