Orange Grove private apartment turned into "drug store"

The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested four suspected drug offenders, all Singaporeans, in two raids on Thursday.

About 1.2kg of heroin, cannabis and other drugs worth more than $118,000 were seized.

Two of the men arrested were suspected of operating a "drug store" from a private apartment at Orange Grove Road.

The drugs including 704g of heroin, 445g of cannabis, 69g of Ice and 183 Ecstasy pills were found in the second-storey apartment, along with cash, knives, parangs and a replica gun.

In another operation at Boon Lay Drive, CNB officers intercepted a suspected drug supplier who was delivering drugs to a 41-year-old woman.

About 268g of heroin was found in the suspected supplier's car.

Another 157g of heroin was found at his hideout in Jalan Bukit Merah.

The officers also raided the flat of the woman. About 91g of heroin, a small amount of Ice and a digital weighing scale were recovered from her apartment in Boon Lay.

Investigations are ongoing.

If convicted, they may face the death penalty.
