According to ICA, sachets of chewing tobacco were concealed in almost every part of the car – back seat, rear bumper, skirting, spare tyre and side panels.

ICA stressed that the borders are the first line of defence in safeguarding Singapore’s security, adding that it will continue to conduct security checks on passengers and vehicles at the checkpoints to prevent attempts to smuggle in undesirable persons, drugs, weapons, explosives and other contrabands.
