The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested three persons and seized about 700g of ‘Ice’ and various other drugs worth more than S$155,000 in an operation on 20 March 2014.

On 20 March 2014, at around 12.40pm, CNB launched an operation to target a known drug trafficker. CNB officers raided a unit in a condominium in the east where two suspects were arrested; a 31-year-old male and one 21-year-old female. Both are Vietnamese and are suspected drug abusers believed to be involved with the drug trafficker.

A search was conducted in the unit and small assorted amount of drugs, along with drug-related paraphernalia, were recovered. The drugs included ‘Ecstasy’, ‘Ice’, and ‘Erimin 5’.

CNB officers persevered in the search for the suspected drug trafficker and at 7.25pm the same evening, CNB officers arrested the drug trafficker, a 39-year-old male Singaporean, in the same condominium.

His hideout, a different unit, was searched and significant assortment of drugs, cash and drug-related paraphernalia were found. Investigations into the trio are on-going.

In total, about 737g of ‘Ice’, 65g of cannabis, 120g of ketamine, 617 ‘Erimin 5’ tablets, more than 600 ‘Ecstasy’ tablets and cash of nearly S$60,000 were seized. The amount of ‘Ice’ seized would be enough to sustain about 422 addicts for a week.

CNB would keep up its vigorous enforcement action against illicit drug activities to maintain a strong deterrent presence against both drug traffickers and abusers alike.
