In the late afternoon of 11 February 2020, officers from the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested a 46-year-old Singaporean male suspected drug trafficker in the vicinity of Rivervale Drive. Prior to his arrest, the suspect was spotted to have entered a car driven by another suspect – a 40-year-old Malaysian male – in the vicinity of Compassvale Drive. The car then proceeded to the vicinity of Rivervale Drive, where the Singaporean male suspect alighted, and was arrested shortly thereafter.
2 CNB officers tailed and intercepted the car along Rivervale Lane and arrested the Malaysian male suspect. A search of the car found about 267g of ‘Ice’, wrapped in two black bundles.

4 Investigations into the drug activities of both suspects are ongoing. The estimated worth of the drugs seized in this operation is about S$73,000. The 440g of heroin seized is sufficient to feed the addiction of 210 abusers for a week. The 383g of ‘Ice’ seized is sufficient to feed the addiction of 220 abusers for a week. CNB will continue to keep up the pressure on drug offenders through regular sustained operations, to keep the streets of Singapore safe from drugs.
