SINGAPORE - More than $61,000 worth of drugs were seized in an operation on Tuesday, the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) said in a statement on Wednesday.

The drugs included about 1kg of cannabis, 95 LSD stamps, and around 130g of Ice. Three men were arrested in relation to the operation.

On Tuesday, officers were deployed to arrest a 20-year-old Singaporean suspected of drug trafficking near Eng Hoon Street. The packet of Ice and the LSD stamps - a hallucinogen made on tabs of blotting paper - were found on him.

Another 20-year-old suspected to be a drug abuser was also arrested at that time.

Further investigations led to the arrest of a 35-year-old Malaysian in Woodlands. A block of cannabis weighing about 1kg - or enough to feed the addictions of 143 drug abusers for a week- was found in his van.

Those convicted of trafficking in more than 500g of cannabis could face the death penalty.
