I have loads of experience with using guns.

Exhibit A: Counter Strike. Exhibit B: Mobile Legends.

As you can see, my expertise in firearms and ranged weapons is impressive, albeit limited. Singapore’s strict gun laws are to blame, of course.

Which is why I felt completely overshadowed when I read this piece of news:

Police Arrest 2 Suspected Drug Offenders For Owning A Loaded Gun

I don’t even know where to start. Should I start with the ‘drug offenders’ part or the ‘loaded gun’ part?

So many illegal activities, so little time.

The Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) announced at a press conference on 9 October that they had arrested two men, aged 24 and 25 in a joint operation on Tuesday and Wednesday.

They were arrested for the possession of a loaded pistol.

According to The Straits Times, Aaron Tang, CNB’s director of the intelligence division had received information that the two suspects were involved in “illicit drug activities” and were also owned firearms.

‘Seahawk’ Pistol Was Loaded With Four Bullets

Both the police and CNB officers were involved and arrested the 24-year-old around Jurong West Street 72.

Luckily it didn’t happen in Yishun.

Important question: Does this dude think that he’s playing the role of a drug cartel boss in an action film?

The Seahawk pistol was found in his unit and was loaded with four bullets. Four spare bullets were also found.

The other man was later arrested on Wednesday in Woodlands. After investigation, it was revealed that he was aware that the other man owned a firearm.

Even though it was a drug operation, no drugs were found on either of them. Urine test results are currently pending so there’s no confirmation on whether drugs were found in them either.

No Indication That Gun Has Been Fired In Singapore

Have you ever been at home at night and suddenly heard a loud bang. I always assume that it’s a harmless noise. But wait.. what if it was a gun?


Nah, don’t worry there’s no need to hide under your bed like Kevin McCallister from Home Alone.

The Deputy Head of the Criminal Investigation Department said there is nothing to indicate the gun has been fired in Singapore.

Phew, looks like we can continue to rest easy at night. This is the first case since 2009 involving the illegal possession of firearms.

The two Singaporeans will be charged in court today. Investigations are still ongoing.

If found guilty of unlawful possession of a firearm, both suspects could be jailed for at least five years and be given at least six strokes of the cane.
