SINGAPORE (Bernama) – The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) seized 1.6 kg of heroin and other drugs estimated to be worth more than S$118,000 from operations conducted from Monday to Tuesday.
It also arrested seven suspected drug offenders, including two suspected drug traffickers.
In a statement yesterday, CNB said on Monday night CNB officers raided the hideout of a suspected drug trafficker at one of the housing blocks in Lower Delta Road.
A 41-year-old Singaporean woman who was not the suspected drug trafficker was arrested within the unit and various drug paraphernalia including an improvised drug-smoking apparatus, numerous empty plastic packets and a digital weighing scale were seized. In the early hours of Tuesday, the suspected drug trafficker, a 34-year-old Singaporean woman, and a 29-year-old man suspect were promptly arrested when they returned to the unit after CNB officers laid an ambush for them in the hideout.
