A 38-year-old Malaysian motorist has been caught for smuggling contraband cigarettes into Singapore, including five packets concealed in a hollowed-out loaf of bread.

Last Sunday (16 February), officers at Woodlands Checkpoint uncovered a total of seven packets of duty-unpaid cigarettes on the man, said the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

The loaf was placed in the basket of the motorcycle. The remaining two cigarettes packets were found in his pocket and in the padding of his helmet, the authorities added.

The case was referred to the Singapore Customs for further investigation.
