Drug bust: $101,000 of Ice seized in Marine Parade

The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested two men and seized drugs worth more than $101,000 during an operation on Wednesday (July 22).

CNB officers arrested a 25-year-old man in a unit at Marine Terrace, off Marine Parade Road.

The suspected drug trafficker was led to his motorcycle, which was parked nearby.

Officers searched the vehicle and found 560g of Ice (methamphetamine) in two bundles in a hidden compartment under the seat.

CNB officers later arrested the suspect's accomplice, a 28-year-old man, around Kallang Avenue.

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

The Misuse of Drugs Act provides for the death penalty if the amount of methamphetamine trafficked exceeds 250g. 

That amount can feed the addiction of about 185 abusers for a week.
