Attempt to smuggle contraband haul foiled

Police in the Tutong District have foiled an attempt to smuggle 740 cartons of contraband cigarettes, said the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF).

The attempt was discovered early yesterday morning, when officers on a routine patrol of Sungai Paku, Telisai, saw some suspicious individuals and three vehicles parked at the side of the road.

As the police approached, the individuals fled into a nearby forest, while one drove off towards the Telisai-Lumut Highway.
