SINGAPORE - Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers discovered over 7,000 sachets of chewing tobacco in a car at Woodlands Checkpoint on Thursday (Aug 30).
The tobacco was hidden in various modified compartments of the car, which was registered in Malaysia.
In a Facebook post, ICA said that the car had been driven by a 22-year-old male Malaysian.
The case was referred to the Health Sciences Authority for further investigations.
The ICA said: "Our borders are our first line of defence in safeguarding Singapore's security. The ICA will continue to conduct security checks to prevent smuggling attempts."
