SINGAPORE - The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested two suspected drug traffickers and seized drugs estimated to be worth more than S$101,000 on Wednesday (July 22).

CNB officers arrested a 25-year-old man in a Marine Terrace HDB flat on Wednesday afternoon.

They found two bundles of crystal methamphetamine, commonly known as Ice, weighing about 560g, in a hidden compartment under the seat of the suspect's motorcycle.

From follow-up investigations, CNB officers arrested his suspected accomplice, a 28-year-old man near Kallang Avenue.

Investigations into the drug trafficking activities of both men are ongoing, CNB said.

Those found guilty of trafficking more than 250g of methamphetamine can be sentenced to death under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

CNB said that 250g of methamphetamine is sufficient to feed the addiction of about 185 abusers for a week.
