On 31 August, ICA officers from Changi Airfreight Centre, Air Cargo Command foiled an attempt to smuggle 2,800 sticks of duty unpaid cigarettes into Singapore.

Our eagle-eyed officers had spotted anomalies in the scanned image of a postal article and decided to open it for further checks. The contraband was found shrink-wrapped with loose tea leaves and concealed in tea packaging.

The case was referred to Singapore Customs for further investigation.
