A video of a commotion around three cars sandwiched on Bukit Batok West Avenue 2, which was posted online earlier this month, has turned out to be a dramatic drug bust by officers from the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB).

The 44-second video showed a group of plain-clothes officers surrounding the vehicle in the middle and trying to smash its windscreen, amid some shouting.

A CNB spokesman said yesterday that the incident took place on July 2 at about 1pm, after CNB officers had earlier moved in to arrest a suspected drug trafficker.

To evade arrest, the suspect had crashed his car through the gantry of a public carpark, but officers managed to stop the vehicle after a brief pursuit and arrested him.

The 44-second clip shows a group of men - actually plain-clothes officers - surrounding the vehicle in the middle and trying to smash its windscreen. The video has registered over 216,000 views since it was uploaded. -- PHOTO: STOMP
