SINGAPORE - Three Singaporean men were arrested by the Central Narcotics Bureau on Friday for drug-related offences.

At about 12.50am, CNB officers stopped two men, aged 23 and 25, who were traveling into Singapore on a Singapore-registered motorcycle at the Woodlands Checkpoint for a routine check. They found about 256g of Ice and 50 Ecstasy pills hidden in the 25-year-old's laptop.

The officers then conducted a follow-up operation and arrested a 33-year-old at about 6.05am near a petrol kiosk in Woodlands. The man is believed to be a drug client of one of the suspects caught earlier.

Altogether the 256g of Ice and 50 Ecstasy tablets had an estimated street value of more than $40,000.

The three suspected drug offenders will be investigated for drug importation.
