SINGAPORE - A drama was played out at Bedok North on Saturday afternoon as police and civil defence officers smashed a car window to nab a drug user.
Police said they received a call at about 12.17pm requesting for assistance along Bedok North Street 3.
A witness told Shin Min Daily News that he saw about 10 officers from the police and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) surrounding a car that was in a carpark for heavy vehicles near Block 537.
There was a man who had apparently locked himself in the car. The commotion drew a crowd of bystanders.
The stand-off lasted for about 10 minutes before officers reportedly broke the back window and forced open the car door at the driver's seat simultaneously.
A 26-year-old man was arrested for drug-related offences, police said.
The case has been referred to the Central Narcotics Bureau for further investigation.
