In a large-scale operation against a suspected organised criminal group (OCG), the Police and Singapore Customs have arrested 44 men and 11 women, aged between 19 and 79, for their suspected involvement in various forms of criminal acts such as unlicensed moneylending and gang-related activities, operating illegal gambling dens, as well as the possession, dealing and storing of duty-unpaid cigarettes.
On 14 October 2017, officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and Singapore Customs conducted simultaneous raids at more than 10 locations islandwide, including Ang Mo Kio, Geylang, Sengkang, Toa Payoh and Yishun, resulting in the arrests.
This is the first joint operation by the Singapore Police Force and Singapore Customs against an OCG since the enactment of the Organised Crime Act 2015. Both agencies are resolute in our enforcement and investigation efforts against OCGs. We will spare no efforts to continue to disrupt and dismantle these OCGs and deprive them of their ill-gotten gains
