Woman caught for smuggling cigarettes hidden in packet of sanitary pads

SINGAPORE: A 41-year-old woman was caught for trying to smuggle cigarettes into Singapore by concealing them in a packet of sanitary pads and among clothing in her luggage.

The Singapore Permanent Resident was stopped at the Singapore Cruise Center when Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers noticed anomalies in the scanned images of her backpack and luggage.

“Further checks revealed seven packets of duty-unpaid cigarettes concealed in a packet of sanitary pad and amongst clothing in the luggage.

“The case was referred to Singapore Customs for investigation,” ICA said in a Facebook post on Thursday.
