In an operation on 3 March 2017, CNB officers arrested a male Chinese Singaporean, aged 26, who is suspected to have ordered drugs (cannabis) from an online website.
On 3 March, CNB was alerted of a suspicious parcel, suspected to contain about 136 grammes of cannabis. The intended recipient had used a fake identity in an attempt to hide his identity. Further investigations found that the intended recipient of the
parcel was the male suspect, and he had used an assumed name in an attempt to evade detection.
CNB officers followed up on the case and arrested the male suspect. A search of his residence found more drugs and drug paraphernalia. This includes cannabis in vegetable, paste and powder forms, as well as 11 pieces of LSD stamps. The male Singaporean
is a student. Investigations are ongoing.
CNB will continue to address the trend of youth drug abuse and online drug peddling through a comprehensive approach of enforcement, education and engagement.
