Four people, including a 49-year-old woman, were arrested on Friday for their suspected involvement in drug trafficking. Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) also seized about 2.12kg of heroin, 216g of "Ice" and 480 Erimin-5 tablets, worth more than $252,000.

CNB said yesterday that it had launched operations against two drug syndicates who were believed to have been distributing drugs here.

In the first operation, at about 6pm on Friday, CNB officers observed a meet-up between a suspected drug trafficker and a drug runner at a housing block in Ang Mo Kio Ave 4. The runner, a woman, was arrested shortly after at Ang Mo Kio St 61. Cash amounting to $8,200 was found on her.

Another group of officers also raided a flat in the housing block where the meet-up took place. A 42-year-old male Singaporean was arrested. Two bundles of heroin were also found inside the rubbish collection point on the ground floor for the suspected trafficker's unit. The man had allegedly disposed the bundles down the rubbish chute.
