The Central Narcotic Bureau (CNB) said in a statement on Facebook that a Singapore mother was arrested at home after taking drugs while taking care of her 9-month-old baby son.
The woman was the sole caregiver of the infant, and the baby was found near drugs during the operation at her unit.
Officers found the woman consuming crystal methamphetamine (Ice) near her baby, and various drug paraphernalia were found in the open.
They described the living conditions as being “squalid”.
The child was then brought back to the station and provided with childcare necessities like milk powder by the officers.
The baby has since been handed over to the Ministry of Social and Family Development as the child’s grandparents can’t take care of him, while the mother will be sent to the Drug Rehabilitation Centre (DRC).
CNB summed up their post saying that these scenes are a stark reminder that those who deal in drugs destroy lives.
