The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) released a statement on Facebook yesterday about the arrest of 100 suspected drug offenders.
Over 8kg of controlled drugs were seized in the islandwide enforcement operation that was conducted from 17 to 21 January.
Here is the statement
In a recent island-wide operation, CNB officers seized a large quantity of drugs, including about 5,640g of heroin, 1,744g of ‘Ice’, 1,308g of cannabis, 5g of New Psychoactive Substances (NPS), 24 LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) stamps, more than 3,000 ‘Ecstasy’ tablets, 654 Erimin-5 tablets, and three bottles of methadone.
100 suspected drug offenders were also arrested.
Deputy Director of CNB, AC Leon Chan said:
“CNB officers will continue to keep a close watch on the ground for drug activities and continue with our robust enforcement to deter drug traffickers and take them off our streets.
Our laws are tough and well known. Anyone who chooses to harm others by selling and trafficking drugs know the serious consequences that their actions will bring.”
The total amount of drugs seized in the operation is sufficient to feed 2,690 heroin abusers, 1,000 ‘Ice’ abusers and 190 cannabis abusers for a week. Investigations into the drug activities of all arrested suspects are ongoing.
