A Malaysian-registered car was found with 3,000 sachets of chewing tobacco concealed within its modified door panels at Tuas Checkpoint last Friday (Aug 16).
In a Facebook post on Tuesday (Aug 20), the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said that officers had become suspicious upon noticing some anomalies with the car’s window panels.
"The case involving a 26-year-old male Malaysian was referred to the Health Sciences Authority for further investigation," added the ICA.
"Our borders are our first line of defence in safeguarding Singapore’s security. The ICA will continue to conduct security checks on passengers and vehicles to prevent smuggling attempts of undesirable persons, drugs, weapons, explosives or other contrabands."
The authority also cheekily quipped in its Facebook post: "Don’t 'chew' dare trick us!"
