SINGAPORE - An estimated 50,000 units of assorted sexual enhancement drugs were seized from a storage unit in Geylang.

The drugs have an approximate street value of $150,000 and were seized by officers from the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) and Immigrations & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) in a joint operation on Aug 18.

A 23-year-old male Chinese national, who was seen carrying a parcel containing the drugs into a storage facility in Geylang, was detained. The suspect is currently assisting in investigations.

HSA said in a statement on Wednesday that these sexual enhancement drugs contain undeclared potent medicinal ingredients and other substances controlled under the Points Act which can cause serious adverse reactions.

It is an offence to import, sell or possess for sale such products containing these substances.

Anyone found guilty of an offence under the Poisons Act can face a fine of up to $10,000 and/or imprisonment for a term of up to two years.

HSA said members of the public are encouraged to report any illegal activity involving sexual enhancement products to the Enforcement Branch of HSA at 6866 3485 or email hsa_is@hsa.gov.sg.
