29 Jan

SINGAPORE: A 42-year-old Singaporean has been caught attempting to smuggle Subutex tablets worth over S$21,000 into Singapore last Friday.

More than 120 tablets of the controlled drug were found packed inside three condoms.

Two of the condoms were hidden in his anal cavity while another condom was hidden in his groin area.

Another two tablets were found in his socks.

An Immigration & Checkpoints Authority officer noticed the man acting suspiciously in the arrival hall of the Singapore Cruise Centre and conducted checks on him and his belongings.

The case was referred to the Central Narcotics Bureau and officers arrested a client of the alleged drug smuggler along Beach Road nearly six hours later.

The trafficker has been charged with importing a controlled drug.

If convicted, he faces at least five years in prison and five strokes of the cane.

His client, a 48-year-old Singaporean man, has been detained pending further investigation. – CNA/so
