Man arrested with nearly 1kg heroin at Woodlands Checkpoint

02 Jan 2014

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.
