ICA officers seize cigarettes hidden in modified cars

SINGAPORE: More than 389 cartons of duty-unpaid cigarettes were seized by Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers last Friday (Jun 21) in two attempted smuggling cases at Woodlands Checkpoint.

Two Singaporean men, aged 30 and 44 years old, were handed over to Singapore Customs for further investigation after the cigarettes were found.

The cigarettes were hidden in various modified compartments in the arriving Singapore-registered cars, ICA said in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

Photos provided by ICA showed the cigarettes stashed in places such as the cars’ dashboard, rear-side panel, door panel and front bumper.
