At least four suspects were arrested early on Oct 9 after a four-hour-plus stand-off at a Woodlands flat following a drugs raid by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB).

The drama began at Block 686B, Woodlands Drive 73, before 8pm on Oct  8 when CNB officers raided the third-storey flat for suspected drug activities.
