Guess what’s hidden under the floor?
On 7 Feb, ICA officers directed an arriving Singapore-registered tour bus for further checks at Tuas checkpoint. During the course of inspection, ICA officers found 1,057 cartons and 10 packets of duty-unpaid cigarettes concealed within modified compartments behind the driver seat, floor board and undercarriage of the bus.
This method of concealment is a cause for concern as it may be used by people with ill intent to smuggle security items into Singapore.
The case has been handed over to Singapore Customs for further investigations.
