A Singaporean man was caught with drugs at Perth Airport in Australia and was arrested.
On 16 November, the Singaporean man arrived in Australia from Singapore and declared that he was not carrying any prohibited goods in his declaration card for departure.
An officer approached him for a luggage inspection, and that was when he got exposed.
According to the Australian Border Force (ABF) and Australian Federal Police, 100ml of gamma butyrolactone (GBL) and a range of anabolic steroids were found.
The Singaporean man appeared in court the next day and pled guilty to two counts of importing border-controlled drugs and one count of importing prohibited items.
He was also banned from entering Australia for three years and was fined AU$5,000 (~S$4,600).
The Central Narcotics Bureau is aware that he has been arrested, and investigations are still ongoing.
It is a crime for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents to consume drugs both in Singapore and overseas.
Consumption of a controlled drug is an offence that can lead to imprisonment of up to 10 years, or a fine not exceeding $20,000, or both.
