KUANTAN – Marine Police arrested two men and seized smuggled cigarettes and fire-crackers on which duty of about RM1.3 million had been unpaid in a raid on a house here on Wednesday.
Marine Police Region 3 commander ACP Azami Ibrahim said the men were a Malaysian in his 30s and a 25-year-old Myanmar national.
The police conducted the raid after tailing a white van from Batu 5 near the mouth of the Kuantan River to the house in Taman Seri Teruntum Wednesday evening, he said.
“It is believed that the cigarettes and fire-crackers were smuggled in for distribution in the state,” he said. – BERNAMA
