          In an operation conducted by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) on 7 June 2018, drugs estimated to be worth more than S$139,000 were seized and prevented from flowing onto the streets.


2.       In the late afternoon of 7 June 2018, CNB officers apprehended two suspected drug traffickers - a 33-year-old and a 44-year-old, both Singaporeans – in a car at the traffic junction between Jurong Town Hall Road and Bukit Batok flyover.


3.       A search of the vehicle uncovered about 1,064g of heroin, 265g of ‘Ice’, 106 ‘Ecstasy’ tablets, 28 Erimin-5 tablets and cash amounting to $2891.10. The total amount of drugs seized were estimated to worth more than S$139,000.

4.       Investigations into the drug activities of the suspects are ongoing. 1,064g of heroin is enough to feed the addiction of about 507 abusers for a week1. 265g of ‘Ice’ is enough to feed the addiction of about 151 abusers for a week2.
