3 teenage girls arrested for abusing drugs

SINGAPORE: Three teenage girls were arrested for abusing Ice, said the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) on Thursday (Feb 8). 

The girls, a 14-year-old and two 13-year-old students, admitted to abusing drugs together on “some occasions”, said CNB. 

“In the early hours of Feb 6, CNB officers visited the residence of a 14-year-old girl and arrested her therein for suspected drug abuse.”

CNB added that a stained packet was recovered from a search of her room, with preliminary investigations revealing that she had “started abusing Ice when she was 13”. 

Investigations also found that on the last occasion of taking Ice – about a week before her arrest – the 14-year-old girl was abusing the drug, also known as crystal methamphetamine, at home with two other friends. 

Officers proceeded to arrest the two other girls at their residences. 

“One of the 13-year-old had decided to participate in abusing Ice out of curiosity when she saw the other two girls doing so,” said CNB. 

Investigations on all three girls are ongoing.
