In the first large drug haul of the new year, the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) seized about 920g of heroin at Woodlands Checkpoint today.
At about 5.20am on 2 January 2014, officers from the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) referred a male who was riding a Malaysian-registered motorcycle to CNB for checks.
CNB officers conducted a search on the male Malaysian and found two bundles believed to be heroin, on the man. One of the bundles was tucked in front of the 25-year-old’s lower abdominal area while the other bundle was found tucked into the back of his trousers.
The heroin seized has a street worth of about S$97,000. Investigations are ongoing.
CNB will continue with its vigorous enforcement action against illicit drug activities. We will maintain a strong deterrent presence against both drug traffickers and abusers alike.
