Singapore. Narcotics officers seized nearly 1kg of heroin worth about $137,000, hidden in what appeared to be packets of cheese balls, at the Woodlands Checkpoint yesterday afternoon.

A 21-year-old Malaysian man was caught attempting to smuggle the drugs into Singapore by hiding them in his motorcycle.

The man, who is unemployed, was riding into Singapore at about 2:30 p.m. yesterday when narcotics officers decided to search his motorcycle in a routine check.

They discovered snack packets stuffed with 914g of heroin in the air filter compartment of his motorcycle.

The case is currently under investigation. Anyone found guilty of importing more than 15g of heroin could face the death sentence.

Last month, a 34-year-old Malaysian man was arrested at Woodlands Checkpoint for smuggling almost 5kg of heroin hidden in bus seats.

Including this most recent seizure, the Central Narcotics Bureau has seized 11.84kg of heroin worth almost $1.8 million since the beginning of this year.
