SINGAPORE - A motorcyclist was caught trying to smuggle nearly 2kg of heroin through Woodlands Checkpoint into Singapore on Wednesday.
Police stopped the 27-year-old Malaysian man at the motorcycle lane and used a dog to search him.
A bundle of drugs was found in the back of the bike and at the man's groin area. He was referred to the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) for further checks.
CNB officers found more drugs hidden on him and his motorcycle. Altogether they seized four bundles of heroin weighing 1.93kg in total, with a street value of more than $135,000 and enough to feed the addiction of about 920 abusers for a week.
Investigations are ongoing. If convicted, he faces the death penalty.
