CNB Seizes Cannabis-Infused Baked Goods In Geylang Bust, 8 Suspects Arrested

CNB Conducts Drug Raids In Geylang, CBD & Chai Chee On 27 Jul

Infusing baked goods with drugs is one of the common ways of smuggling illegal substances.

As delicious and harmless these bakes might look, they’re not enough to fool Singapore’s Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB).

Cannabis-infused baked goods were among substances seized during multiple drug raids on Tuesday (27 Jul). Authorities arrested 8 suspected drug offenders aged between 23 and 34.

The first suspect, a 34-year-old Singaporean male, was arrested in the vicinity of Gemmill Lane in the Central Business District on Tuesday (27 Jul).

The CNB officers then raided his hideout in the same area, which led to the arrest of a 32-year-old Singaporean female on the scene.

After escorting the 29-year-old to the Lorong 23 Geylang unit, officers seized 19 suspected cannabis-infused baked goods.

Investigations ongoing

With the total amount of 2,508g of ‘Ice’ seized, CNB estimated that it was enough to feed 1,430 abusers for a week.

As investigations are ongoing, authorities continue to be on the lookout for suspected drug activities in Singapore.

Thank you, CNB, for your efforts and hard work in keeping Singapore drug-free.
