If these sexual enhancement drugs (SEDs) had gone on sale in Singapore, those who bought them may have suffered from severe adverse reactions.

Under the Poisons Act, these SEDs contain undeclared and potent medicinal ingredients.

In a joint operation by the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) and the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA), an estimated 50,000 units of these SEDs were seized from a storage unit in Geylang on Tuesday (Aug 18).

The drugs have an approximate street value of $150,000.

HSA and ICA officers had spotted a man carrying a parcel of SEDs into the storage facility.

They raided the unit and seized the drugs that were intended for resale in Geylang.

Then they detained the man, a 23-year-old Chinese national, who is now helping with with further investigations.

It is an offence to import, sell or possess for sale such products.

Anyone found guilty of an offence under the Poisons Act is liable to a fine of up to $10,000 and a jail term of up to two years.
