S'porean girls caught bringing in 3 airsoft guns, pellets

Three airsoft guns and packets of pellets were seized from two Singaporean women by the police at the Woodlands Checkpoint on March 15. 

The items were found in the boot of a Singapore-registered car driven by a Singaporean woman, accompanied by a female passenger, said the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority in a Facebook post on Tuesday (March 20). 

Under the Arms and Explosives Act, airsoft guns, or any other guns which shoot pellets using compressed gas, are categorised as controlled items. 

Anyone found guilty of having these prohibited items in his or her possession or control without a licence may be fined up to $5,000 and jailed up to three years.

It is also an offence for anyone to import or export any arms or explosives, or any parts of arms or explosives without a licence. 

Those convicted may face a jail term up to three years and a fine of $10,000.
