'Accident' at Bukit Batok West was actually CNB drug bust

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."
