CNB seized 1.1kg of ice, two arrested

On 15 April 2014, the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) launched an operation targeting a syndicate that has been actively distributing Ice in Singapore. CNB officers seized about 1.1kg of Ice and arrested the syndicate leader and his runner.

After establishing that the duo was hiding in a hotel in the city area, CNB officers moved in and arrested two Singaporean males, aged 38 and 40, at the ground lobby of the hotel at about 6.10pm. The duo was brought to the hotel room where they were occupying and CNB officers recovered about 1.1kg of Ice from the room. The duo has intended for the drugs to be distributed onto the streets of Singapore. The drug haul had a street value of about S$165,000 and enough to sustain about 629 abusers for one week

Both males are being investigated for drug trafficking. If convicted, they may face the death penalty.

CNB will continue with our enforcement efforts to keep the streets of Singapore safe from drugs.
