Discovery of Contraband Items

A number of boxes containing contraband items were found in 'Operasi Sekatan Jalan Raya' carried out by personnel of the Department of Investigation and Traffic Control at the intersection near Jalan Utama Berakas, Brunei Muara District, last night.

The contraband items were discovered when a suspicious vehicle entered a road junction before the operation began. The inspection found 8 packages of boxes were stored in the passenger compartment and the rear bonnet which are believed to be contraband items, namely cigarettes. The Royal Customs and Excise Department was then contacted for further investigation and action.
