PERSONNEL from the Company ‘C’ Reserve Unit of the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) thwarted a smuggling activity through Operasi Langkah conducted at a mouse trail in the Lumapas area recently. Local Haji Zulkifli bin Haji Ismail, 43, and Malaysian Safaae bin Mat, 61, suspected of attempting to smuggle cartons of cigarettes, were apprehended.

The police personnel also seized six cartons of cigarettes with several brands.

All items were taken to the Limau Manis Police Station and handed over to the Royal Customs and Excise Department (JKED) for further investigation.

The case is being investigated under Section 146 of the Excise Order 2006 and Chapter 17 of Immigration Act.

The RBPF urged the public to provide and share information on any criminal activity through the police hotline 993 or visit any nearby police station.
