SINGAPORE: An 18-year-old was among the 71 suspected drug offenders arrested during an islandwide operation conducted by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB).

Drugs with an estimated street value of S$157,000 (US$117,600) were also seized, the bureau said in a news release on Tuesday (Nov 28).

This comprised a total of about 881g of heroin, 193g of Ice, 137g of cannabis and an Erimin-5 tablet. About S$22,580 in cash was also confiscated.

Some of the areas covered during the operation from Nov 19 to Nov 24 included Ang Mo Kio, Bukit Batok, Kallang and Punggol.

KNIFE, KNUCKLE DUSTER SEIZED​


On the evening of Nov 19, CNB arrested a 24-year-old man for suspected drug offences near Pasir Ris Street 11.

The Singaporean had attempted to evade arrest by climbing out of a window of a residential unit on the second floor.

He was eventually arrested on the ground floor and escorted to his residence where about 11g of Ice, various drug paraphernalia, a knuckle duster and a karambit knife were recovered.

HEROIN FOUND​


Two Singaporean men were arrested for suspected drug trafficking offences in separate CNB raids on Nov 20.

A 64-year-old man was arrested in the Redhill Close area with officers forcibly entering his residence after he refused to open the door. A search of the unit yielded about 81g of heroin, 13g of Ice and a total of S$22,580.15 in cash.

Forced entry was also required at the "hideout" of a 52-year-old man near Champions Way in Woodlands. About 679g of heroin and 95g of Ice were seized, said CNB.

Investigations into all arrested suspects are ongoing.

Trafficking or offering to traffic a controlled drug is an offence under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Anyone found guilty of trafficking more than 15g of diamorphine or “pure heroin” may face the mandatory death penalty.
