Over 6kg of managed medicine – sufficient to feed 1,500 abusers for every week – seized by CNB, Latest Singapore News
Two Singaporeans have been arrested for suspected drug trafficking actions throughout an operation by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) on Wednesday (July 27), with greater than 6kg of managed medicine seized.
The road worth of all of the medicine seized – about 1,893g of heroin, 270g of Ice, or crystal methamphetamine, 4,193g of hashish and 7 bottles of methadone – was estimated to be about $313,000.
The quantity of heroin seized may feed about 900 abusers for every week, stated CNB, whereas the quantity of hashish discovered may feed the dependancy of some 600 abusers for every week.
On Wednesday night, CNB officers arrested the 2 Singaporeans – a 41-year-old man and a 34-year-old lady – in a resort room in Sentosa. There, 1,849g of heroin, 269g of Ice, 663g of hashish and 6 bottles of methadone have been discovered.
They have been then dropped at their hideout at a personal residential enclave within the neighborhood of Shenton Way early Thursday morning. There, 44g of heroin, 1g of Ice, 3,530g of hashish and one bottle of methadone have been recovered.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Aaron Tang, director of the intelligence division at CNB, stated of the operation: “Drug syndicates and traffickers will cease at nothing to govern and exploit drug abusers on their addictions, all for their very own revenue and greed.
“These traffickers have no qualms that their luxurious lifestyles – lavish holidays, luxury cars and private residential apartments – are at the expense of other innocent parties, such as the children or loved ones of the drug abusers.”
Investigations into the suspects’ drug actions are ongoing.
Anyone discovered responsible of trafficking greater than 15g of pure heroin, 250g of methamphetamine or 500g of hashish, might face the loss of life penalty.
