The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) seized 1.9kg of heroin, estimated to be worth more than $201,000, in a one-day operation on Thursday.
Three Singaporean men, aged between 40 and 53, were also arrested in the drug bust.
CNB officers were on the lookout for a suspected drug trafficker, who was suspected to be holding on to a large heroin consignment from a syndicate in a neighbouring country.
The suspect, and two other associates, were arrested after being seen travelling in a car in the Marina area. About 965g of heroin was recovered from the car - both wrapped in bundles and stashed under the front passenger floorboard, and loose heroin in the side pocket of the driver's door.
