SINGAPORE - What looked like an accident scene at Bukit Batok West on July 2 turned out to be a drug bust by the Central Narcotics Bureau.
A CNB spokesperson clarified that officers were trying to stop a 26-year-old drug trafficker who attempted to evade arrest by driving away.
According to CNB, the alleged drug trafficker had crashed through a public gantry in his attempt to escape, and the clip apparently shows what happened after.
Here is what CNB said about the incident:
"On July 2 at around 1pm, CNB conducted an operation against a 26-year-old drug trafficker in Bukit Batok.
"When CNB officers move in to arrest him, he had attempted to evade arrest by crashing his car through a public carpark's gantry.
"CNB officers stopped his car successfully a short distance later along Bukit Batok West Ave 2.
"About 200g of Ice was seized from the male Singaporean's car.
"CNB officer conducted follow-up raid at his hideout in a condominium in the Bukit Batok vicinity and recovered another 488 ecstasy tablets, about 160g of Ketamine, 56 Erimin 5 tablets, small amount of Ice and drug paraphernalia.
"Investigations into the drug trafficking offences are ongoing."
