More than 100 arrested in a four-day drug attack



Singapore: A total of 104 suspected drug abusers were arrested in a four-day operation on the island this week, the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) announced on Friday (April 26th).

Among the seized drugs are 551g Ice, 308g of new psychoactive substances, 57g cannabis, seven Erimin-5 tablets, ecstasy tablet and some GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate), said CNB.

The operation, supported by the Singapore Police Force, began on Monday morning covering areas including Boeing Lay, Bukit Batok, Choa Chu Kang, Clementi, Eunos, Marsilling, Simei, Woodlands and Yishun.

Three of the suspects were arrested after being wiretapped by CNB officers.

The police spotted two men from Singapore, one of 35, and others 34, leaving the Bedok area in North Street 2 in a car on Monday afternoon.

They headed to Tuas See Square, where they met a 46-year-old Malaysian truck driver who stopped the vehicle beside the car.

"The two vehicles split up ways soon afterwards, not knowing they were wiretapped by CNB officers," CNB said.

The Singappians were also arrested after officers intercepted their vehicle together with the Eunos 5 road.

A black bag containing 514g Ice, worth about $ 51,000, was returned from under the co-driver's seat.

During the raid on suspects' homes, police found two Erimine-5 tablets, two unidentified yellow tablets and two improvised medical devices that belonged to the 35-year-old person and a small amount of ice belonging to the other suspect from Singapore.

Police officers also intercepted a Malaysian truck driver and arrested him in Panjur Lane.

More than $ 1,200 in cash was seized by all three suspects.

"Drug investigations of all suspects are underway," CNB said, adding that 514g of Ice would be sufficient to feed dependence on about 294 bullies in a week.
