14-year-old arrested for suspected drug trafficking in islandwide Singapore drug bust

SINGAPORE: A 14-year-old was arrested for suspected drug trafficking, with about 9g of cannabis as well as drug paraphernalia seized from his home in Lower Delta Road on Tuesday (Nov 8).

The boy was the youngest to be arrested in an islandwide crackdown by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) from Sunday to Friday, which netted a total of 96 suspected drug offenders.

Drugs with an estimated street value of more than S$359,000 were seized.

They included about 146g of heroin, 882g of ice, 3,624g of cannabis, 402g of ketamine, 6g of new psychoactive substances, 243g of ecstasy tablets, 685 Erimin-5 tablets, 219 LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) stamps and 23 bottles of liquid suspected to contain GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate).

“The seizure of 882g of ice can feed the addiction of about 500 abusers for a week, while 3,624g of cannabis is sufficient to feed the addiction of about 510 abusers for a week,” CNB said in a media release on Friday.
