The crabs were uncovered when officers spotted anomalies in the scanned images of a parcel declared as ‘toys’. When they opened the parcel, they found the crabs hidden inside two containers. The case was later referred to the National Parks Board (NParks) for further investigation.

As guardians of Singapore’s borders, ICA is Singapore’s first and last line of defence. ICA will continue to stay vigilant and thwart any attempts to smuggle in prohibited or security items into Singapore.
