Chicken wing smuggling attempt goes up in flames

A smuggling attempt, along with the vehicle used to ferry the contraband chicken wings, went up in smoke along the Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien (SHOAS) Bridge on Friday evening.

The police foiled the attempt and apprehended the driver, an unemployed 32-year-old local man, through its continuous surveillance and crime prevention strategies, the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) said.

Detectives and Bangar Police Station personnel surveilling the vicinity of Bangar, on noticing a suspicious saloon vehicle heading towards Labu, swiftly blocked the road near the Brunei Bridge Authority (BBA).
