More than $124,000 worth of drugs were seized by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) in two separate operations on Wednesday. The total drug haul was about 1.1kg of heroin, 33g of Ice and 189 Erimin-5 tablets. Seven drug offenders were arrested.

CNB and police officers were deployed to arrest a 54-year-old Singaporean male suspected drug trafficker at a Housing Board block in Simei. Officers saw him meet up with a 32-year-old Malaysian male, shortly before they parted ways.

When the younger man left the block, officers arrested him and seized $4,900 from him.

In the evening yesterday, CNB officers raided the unit of the older man and arrested him. Drugs, including 976g of heroin, 189 Erimin-5 tablets and a small amount of Ice were seized from the unit. About $5,600 in cash was also seized from the man.
