A total of 314 cartons and 2,030 packets of duty-unpaid cigarettes were found hidden in various compartments of two cars that arrived separately at Tuas Checkpoint on Saturday (Oct 13).
Officers from the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) had discovered the cigarettes in places such as the dashboard, door panels, rear passenger seat and bumper of the Malaysia-registered cars.
The cigarettes were detected separately within a span of three hours, said the ICA in a Facebook post titled "You can’t smoke us" on Wednesday (Oct 17).
The cases, involving two Malaysian men aged 58 and 35, were referred to the Singapore Customs.
The ICA added: "This method of concealment is a cause for concern as similar methods may be used by people with ill intent to smuggle security items into Singapore."
