NARCOTICS officers netted the years largest haul of the drug ketamine, after following a young Malaysian drug dealer around Singapore.
After every stop the 24-year-old made, they moved in on the person he spoke to.
Each time, they found drugs. All in, they seized 1,210g of ketamine the third largest amount since October 2001 and 231 Ecstasy tablets. These have a street value of more than S$79,000 (RM178,188).
The shadowing began on Tuesday, when they spotted the syndicate leader, codenamed Jimmy, enter the country at the Woodlands checkpoint with his girlfriend. The Straits Times/ Asia News Network
