A 38-year-old man has been arrested for suspected drug activities involving cakes believed to be infused with cannabis.

Officers from the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) arrested the Singaporean man in the Upper Cross Street area on Wednesday (Apr 28) evening, the bureau said in a news release on Friday.

The man was taken to his hideout in the same area where officers searched and seized five packets containing about 36g of Ice, 87 cakes believed to be infused with cannabis and various drug paraphernalia.

Investigations into the suspect are ongoing.

CNB said that products such as cannabis-infused cakes can be used to “entice” young people to consume drugs.

“CNB would … like to urge parents to play an active part to protect our youths from the menace of drugs, and to remind their children that they should not consume products unknown to them, or offered by strangers,” it said.

“To entice more youths to consume these products, they are often disguised as candy or other food products.”
