In the evening hours of 11 July 2018, officers from the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested a suspected drug trafficker – an 18-year-old Singaporean male – and recovered about 2,906g of cannabis from within a backpack carried by the suspect.
2 Another party of CNB officers proceeded to raid the residence of another suspected drug trafficker – a 20-year-old Singaporean male. The 20-year-old suspect was observed to have met with the 18-year-old suspect earlier. Four other suspected drug abusers – a 19-year-old and three 20-year-olds, all Singaporean males - were also arrested within the unit.
3 The residence of the 18-year-old suspect was subsequently raided. CNB officers recovered a total of about 45g of cannabis from within the unit.
