A local man and woman were arrested attempting to smuggle 15 boxes of vape devices and related items into the country yesterday, the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) said.

The pair was stopped during a routine inspection at the Bebuloh Police Control Post in Kampong Wasan, where a search of their vehicle uncovered the contraband.

The suspects were taken to the Limau Manis Police Station, while the case has been transferred to Royal Customs and Excise Department for further action.
