    SINGAPORE: About 460g of heroin was seized from a Malaysia-registered motorcycle at Woodlands Checkpoint on Monday.

    The motorcyclist, a 31-year-old Malaysian man, was stopped by a checkpoint officer at around 3.40am on Tuesday,
    said the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) and Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) in a press release on Tuesday.

    A bag of heroin worth an estimated S$32,000 (RM99,360) was found on the man.

    He was subsequently arrested and his motorycle seized for further investigations.

    "The Misuse of Drugs Act provides for the death penalty if the amount of diamorphine (or pure heroin) trafficked exceeds 15g," said ICA and CNB.

    That is equivalent to 1,250 straws, which is sufficient to feed the addiction of about 180 abusers for a week. - The Straits Times/Asia News Network
