Singapore's Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested three people and seized nearly 1kg of cannabis, along with other drugs like heroin and Ice in an operation on Friday.

CNB said in a press release on Saturday that the first two suspects; Singaporean men aged 41 and 25 - were caught at Tampines Street 86. They were spotted together before making their way to their respective cars where they were arrested separately.

The CNB officials searched the vehicle belonging to the first suspect and uncovered a block of cannabis weighing about 980g, and worth nearly S$10,000. While, in the other car they found about 20g of Ice, 16g of heroin, an Erimin-5 tablet and other unknown tablets.

Another 30-year-old suspected drug abuser was arrested by the officers later that day from Redhill Close. The authorities believe that he is a drug client of the older man who was arrested earlier.

About 5 g of Ice, various drug-smoking utensils, as well as six improvised air rifles were seized from the suspect's residence.

The authorities said that the investigations on all the suspects are going on. If convicted, suspects who traffic more than 500g of cannabis into Singapore could face the death penalty.

According to CNB, police are looking into the improvised air rifles that were seized.
