SINGAPORE: Anti-narcotics officers have arrested two Singaporean men and seized about 1.1 kilogrammes of Ice in a raid.
On April 15, the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) launched an operation targeting a syndicate that has been actively distributing Ice in Singapore.
After establishing that the syndicate leader and his runner were hiding in a hotel in the city area, CNB officers moved in and arrested the two men, aged 38 and 40, at the ground lobby of the hotel at about 6.10pm.
The pair was brought to the hotel room they were occupying and CNB officers recovered about 1.1 kilogrammes of Ice from the room.
The duo had intended for the drugs to be distributed on the streets of Singapore.
CNB said the drug haul had a street value of about S$165,000, and is enough to sustain about 629 abusers for one week.
Both men are being investigated for drug trafficking.
If convicted, they may face the death penalty. - CNA/ms
