Here is the rest of the statement from CNB: 

At about 5.20am on 2 January 2014, officers from the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) referred a male who was riding a Malaysian-registered motorcycle to CNB for checks.

CNB officers conducted a search on the male Malaysian and found two bundles believed to be heroin, on the man. One of the bundles was tucked in front of the 25-year-old's lower abdominal area while the other bundle was found tucked into the back of his trousers.

The heroin seized has a street worth of about S$97,000.

Investigations are ongoing.

CNB will continue with its vigorous enforcement action against illicit drug activities. We will maintain a strong deterrent presence against both drug traffickers and abusers alike.
