Former Auxiliary Policeman Steals Seized Sex Drugs for Personal Use, Jailed


A former auxiliary policeman, Mohd Aris Jalil, has been sentenced to six weeks’ jail for stealing illegal sex enhancement drugs (SEDs) seized from peddlers in the Geylang area.

The 66-year-old Singaporean pleaded guilty to one count of criminal breach of trust in court on May 7, according to ST.

Aris, who was the leader of a team patrolling around Geylang, admitted to taking the seized drugs for his own consumption. He is no longer working as an auxiliary policeman for security firm Certis Cisco.

Aris was one of the four men involved in the case were also hauled into court in November 2023.

Malaysian Thiru Murugan Shanmugam, 30, and Chinese national Chen Zixiong, 32, are facing charges in connection to the case. Thiru, a former Certis Cisco auxiliary policeman, is accused of involvement in the illegal drug trade, while Chen is alleged to be an SED peddler.

The fourth man, Mohammad Hafizudin Hanapiah, 30, a security officer employed by Dynamiz Security and contracted to Certis Cisco, was sentenced to three months and two weeks’ jail in January after pleading guilty to a graft charge.

According to Deputy Public Prosecutor Kiera Yu, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) had formed Foreign Workers Management (FWM) teams to patrol areas where foreigners congregate. The FWM teams, consisting of auxiliary police officers and security officers, were tasked with enforcing laws against offenses such as littering and the sale of illegal SEDs.

Aris, Hafizudin, and Thiru were part of a team known as “Golf 3,” attached to Geylang Neighbourhood Police Centre. They were responsible for seizing SEDs from peddlers in the area, with the drugs supposed to be handed over to the SPF. However, Aris kept a portion of the seized drugs for his own use before September 13, 2022.

 “He chose to take the SEDs… when no one in the team would notice his actions”, DPP said in court according to the report.

The Corrupt Practices Investigations Bureau (CPIB) received information about offenses committed by members of Golf 3 on August 29, 2022. A search conducted on Aris on September 13 that year revealed SEDs worth $188 in his possession.

In addition, court documents revealed that Hafizudin and Thiru worked together to obtain $140 in bribes from Chen in exchange for refraining from taking enforcement action against him.

For his criminal breach of trust, Aris could have been jailed for up to 15 years and fined.
