Four Singaporean men were arrested for suspected drug offences, in an operation conducted by the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) on Monday (Sep 17).
A total of about 803g of heroin and 5g of 'Ice' were also seized.
In a statement issued by the CNB on Tuesday (Sep 18), 803g of heroin is enough to feed the addiction of about 382 abusers for a week.
The drugs seized had an estimated worth of about $56,000.
On Monday afternoon, a suspected drug abuser -- a 52-year-old Singaporean man -- was arrested in the vicinity of Boon Lay Avenue. A packet of heroin was recovered from him.
Further investigations revealed that the suspected drug abuser obtained the heroin from a suspected drug trafficker, who was also residing in the same area.
CNB officers subsequently raided the suspected drug trafficker's unit that was located on the fourth storey of a housing block.
Forced entry was effected as the occupants within the unit repeatedly refused to comply with lawful orders given by the officers.
Both suspects -- a 55-year-old and a 63-year-old -- were arrested after the forced entry.
A total of about 47g of heroin and 5g of 'Ice' were recovered from within the unit. A small amount of heroin and 'Ice' were also recovered from the 55-year-old suspect.
CNB officers later went through the rubbish chute that was linked to the unit raided, and a total of about 756g of heroin were recovered from the bin.
During the raid, a 51-year-old man was observed behaving suspiciously at a bus stop nearby. He was arrested shortly after for suspected drug abuse.
Investigations are ongoing.
