Travelling? Do not follow suit
ICA officers found a total of 419 cartons and 378 packets of duty-unpaid cigarettes in seven suitcases in a Malaysia-registered car at Woodlands checkpoint on 10 November.
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.
Four male Malaysians aged 25 to 34, the duty-unpaid cigarettes and vehicle were handed over to Singapore Customs for further investigations.
