A massive haul of contraband was seized by police and armed forces personnel during a COVID-19 joint operation in Kampong Junjongan on Wednesday.

According to the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF), 1,400 cartons of cigarettes and 276 bottles of alcoholic beverages were confiscated when they found two suspicious vehicles using a mouse trail during a patrol by the ‘C’ Company Police Reserve Unit with the Royal Brunei Armed Forces (RBAF).

When the enforcement officers reached the vehicles, the drivers had already fled the scene.
Both vehicles were seized and brought to the Limau Manis Police Station for preliminary investigations before being handed over to the Royal Customs and Excise Department for further investigations.
