SINGAPORE: The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested five people and seized more than 800 grammes of heroin and about 100 grammes of ’Ice’ with a street value of more than S$100,000.
The five were nabbed on September 18 during a sting operation.
Two of the suspects, believed to be drug couriers, were caught in Pasir Ris.
The two Malaysians, who are aged 29 and 31, were believed to have been ferrying fresh consignments of drugs recently received.
Another suspect connected with the two suspects was caught at a petrol kiosk along Loyang Avenue.
Drugs, including about 670 grammes of heroin and 70 grammes of ’Ice’, and a weighing scale were recovered from the suspect’s car.
The 49—year—old Singaporean driver was immediately arrested.
Later in the night, CNB officers recovered more drugs in his hideout at Pasir Ris — including about 85 grammes of heroin, 35 grammes of ’Ice’ and empty plastic packets.
Meanwhile, another team of CNB officers deployed at the void deck in an area near Geylang arrested the suspected trafficker’s drug associate.
About 60 grammes of heroin, small amounts of ’Ice’ and Erimin—5 were found at his hideout in the same block.
CNB officers also arrested a 55—year—old Singaporean suspected drug abuser in the unit.
Some of the heroin were found hidden in a black rubber shoe in the living room.
All the men are being investigated for drug offences.
