SINGAPORE: Drugs with an estimated street value of S$480,000, including more than 6.7kg of heroin, were seized during an operation conducted by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) in Jurong West on Tuesday (Jan 31).
Officials also confiscated 9g of Ice, 22g of cannabis, 102 Erimin-5 tablets and 14 bottles of methadone, CNB said in a news release on Thursday.
Four people, aged between 36 and 54, were arrested for suspected drug offences.
On Tuesday afternoon, CNB officers arrested a 49-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman at a residential block near Jurong West Street 93 for suspected drug trafficking offences.
“As officers moved in to arrest both suspects, the man put up a violent struggle and necessary force was used to subdue him,” CNB said.
Several packets and straws containing about 70g of heroin were recovered from the man.
Officers then raided the man’s residence in the same block, where two men aged 51 and 54 were subsequently arrested. They also recovered about 7g of heroin, two Erimin-5 tablets and five bottles of methadone from various locations inside the unit.
“Prior to both men’s arrest, suspected controlled drugs were believed to have been thrown out of the unit’s window,” CNB said. Officers later recovered the substances, which included packets containing about 32g of heroin.
