Smuggling Attempt Foiled

122 cartons of cigarettes were found during a monitoring and patrol conducted in the mangrove forest area, near Kampung Sungai Bunga Housing recently.


During the patrol, the Marine Police Personnel, Operations Department, Royal Brunei Police Force, managed to find several piles of suspicious boxes in the area. The discovery was the result of monitoring and patrolling in the area following a search operation for a boat with two suspects who had fled while trying to be intercepted by the personnel. All contraband items were handed over to the Royal Customs and Excise Department for further investigation.
