“Drugs have a devastating impact on individuals, families and communities-abusers are robbed of the opportunity to live their lives to the fullest, relationships are destroyed, and the larger community pays a hefty price in dealing with the wide-ranging consequence that drug abuse can bring,” said commanding Officer of CNB Enforcement ‘F’ and ‘L’ Division, Superintendent Lee Pin How.
“CNB will continue to persevere in safeguarding a safe and drug-free society for our people and our children.”
Investigations into all arrested suspects are ongoing.
