The Central Narcotics Bureau, CNB, and the police have arrested 86 drug offenders and seized drugs worth more than $39,000 in an island-wide operation. 

Investigations on all the arrested persons are ongoing. 

In one of the operations on Wednesday, CNB officers raided a unit at Hougang Avenue 8 and arrested a 48-year-old man there. 

They recovered about 52 grammes of heroin, estimated to be worth more than $5,000 from the unit.

Investigations into the drug trafficking activities of the man are ongoing. 

If convicted, he faces a minimum of 5 years' imprisonment and 5 strokes of the cane.
