SINGAPORE — Two Singaporeans have been arrested for cultivating cannabis out of a residential unit in Yishun.
The suspected drug offenders, a 44-year-old man and a 52-year-old woman, were nabbed on Monday (9 September) at a home in the vicinity of Yishun Street 31, said the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) and Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) in a joint press release on Tuesday.
CNB raided the unit after the ICA detected glass apparatuses suspected to be drug-smoking utensils at the Parcel Post Section of SingPost Centre. Inside the unit, officers found more glass apparatuses, a makeshift greenhouse, two pots of cannabis plants as well as instructions – both printed and written – on how to cultivate the plants.
Investigations against both suspects are ongoing.
Cannabis is a Class A controlled drug under the Misuse of Drugs Act. Those convicted of cultivating cannabis may be jailed up to 20 years, fined up to $40,000 or both.
