1000+ cartons of illegal cigarettes seized at Tuas checkpoint.

Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) – More than 1000 cartons of contraband cigarettes were seized from a tour bus coming into Singapore on Wednesday (Feb 7).

Immigration officers discovered 1057 cartons of duty unpaid cigarettes hidden in compartments on board a Singapore registered tour bus,

Creatively illigal?

The driver, a 57 year-old Singaporean man, attempted to hide the boxes in modified compartments within his bus. Including in the seats, floorboards and undercarriage.

It is a wonder how the officers discovered them in such inconspicuous locations.

The driver, along with the cigarettes was handed over to Singapore customs.
