SINGAPORE - A total of 88 suspected drug offenders were arrested in a four-day islandwide Central Narcotics Bureau operation which started on Monday.

About 90g of heroin, 70g of Ice, 130g of cannabis, 268 Erimin-5 tablets and two Ecstasy tablets were seized, CNB said in a release on Friday (Sept 29).

Supported by the Singapore Police Force, the operation covered areas including Boon Lay, Bukit Merah, Chai Chee, Geylang, Hougang, Jurong, Marsiling, Tampines and Yishun.
