Singapore's Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said in a press release that a 23-year-old Malaysian woman was arrested at Woodlands Checkpoint on Friday for allegedly dealing with drugs. The authorities added that 208g of Ice was seized from the car she was driving.
ICA said that the officers found the drugs estimated to be worth more than S$20,000 after they directed her Malaysian-registered car for further checks. "In the course of checks, an ICA officer detected one bundle inside the rear passenger seat cup holder," the press release added.
The authorities said that the case has been handed over to the Central Narcotics Bureau for further investigations.
In a joint statement today, ICA and CNB said Singapore's borders were the first line of defence in safeguarding the country's security.
"The Home Team agencies will continue to conduct checks on passengers and vehicles at the checkpoints to prevent attempts to smuggle in undesirable persons, drugs, weapons, explosives and other contrabands," the joint media release added.
