05 Sep 2014

On 5 September 2014, Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested three suspected Singaporean male drug offenders and seized about 256g of Ice and 50 Ecstasy tablets from the whole operation. The drug haul had an estimated street value of more than S$40,000.

At about 12.50am, CNB officers stopped a duo (a 25-year-old and a 23-year-old) who were traveling into Singapore on a Singapore-registered motorcycle through the Woodlands Checkpoint, for a routine check. CNB officers conducted a further detailed check and about 256g of methamphetamine (“Ice”) and 50 Ecstasy pills that were hidden in the 25-year-old’s laptop were found.

At about 6.05am, CNB officers conducted a follow-up operation and arrested a 33-year-old male Singaporean near a petrol kiosk in the Woodlands vicinity. The 33-year-old is believed to be a drug client of the 25-year-old.

The three suspected drug offenders will be investigated for drug importation.

CNB will continue to intensify its enforcement efforts and keep the streets of Singapore safe from drugs.
