SINGAPORE: Sixty boxes of sexual enhancement drugs were packed in plastic bags and hidden in clothes in a car registered in Malaysia with Tuas Checkpoint, said the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) Tuesday (August 21).
In a message on Facebook, ICA said that the tablets, labeled as Candy B + Complex, were detected when the car entered Singapore last Saturday.
The 23-year-old driver and 22-year-old passenger, both Malaysian men, were each found with 30 metal cans of the tablets in their possession.
The case was referred to the Health Sciences Authority (HSA), ICA said in the post.
"This way of hiding is a cause for concern because similar methods can be used by people who do not intend to smuggle security items to Singapore," it added.
According to previous HSA press releases, the drug labeled "Candy B + Complex" contains tadalafil, a prescription medicine used to treat male erectile dysfunction.
Tadalafil is not suitable for certain patients, such as patients with heart problems, and can cause serious side effects such as loss of vision and hearing, strokes and heart attacks.
