Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) officers arrested six persons, aged between 26 and 33, for suspected drug activities in two operations on 6 and 7 October 2022. A total of about 2,280g of cannabis, 104g of ketamine and ten LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) stamps, with an estimated street value of $85,000, were seized during the operations. The seizure of 2,280g of cannabis can feed the addiction of about 330 abusers for a week.
2. In the evening of 6 October, CNB officers arrested a 26-year-old Singaporean man in the vicinity of Sims Ave East and about 41g of cannabis was recovered from him. The 26-year-old was escorted to his vehicle, where about 2,239g of cannabis and ten LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) stamps were seized.
