25 Jun 2019

            In an operation conducted by the Central Narcotics Bureau on 24 June 2019, a total of about 730g of heroin, 48g of new psychoactive substances (NPS), 92g of cannabis, 72g of ‘Ice’, 14g of cocaine, a gramme of ketamine, 624 Erimin-5 tablets, 104 ‘Ecstasy’ tablets and a bottle of methadone were seized.  The drugs were estimated to be worth about S$70,000.  Three suspected drug offenders, all Singaporeans, were arrested.

 

2          In the late afternoon of 24 June, CNB officers were deployed in the vicinity of York Hill to conduct observation on a suspected drug trafficker, a 41-year-old male.  Officers spotted the 41-year-old male entering a car driven by another suspect, a 45-year-old male. A while later, the 41-year-old male alighted from the car in the vicinity of Selegie Road.  Shortly after, CNB officers moved in to arrest the 41-year-old and recovered a small amount of ‘Ice’ from within a sling bag carried by the suspect.  Officers proceeded to raid the 41-year-old man’s hideout, a unit in the same vicinity.  From within the unit, about 92g of cannabis, 48g of NPS, 71g of ‘Ice’, 14g of cocaine, a gramme of ketamine, 135 Erimin-5 tablets and 10 ‘Ecstasy’ tablets were recovered from within the unit.  A 34-year-old female suspected drug abuser was also arrested. 

 

3          The 41-year-old male was then escorted to his official residence, in the vicinity of York Hill.  The unit was searched and about 730g of heroin, a small amount of ‘Ice’, 489 Erimin-5 tablets, 94 ‘Ecstasy’ tablets and a bottle of methadone were recovered from within the unit. 

 

4          A separate party of CNB officers had tailed the 45-year-old driver of the car to the vicinity of Changi Road, where he was arrested after he alighted from the car. 

 

5          Investigations into the drug activities of all the suspects are ongoing.  The 730g of heroin seized is sufficient to feed the addiction of about 347 abusers for a week.
