THE Immigration & Checkpoints Authority seized over 2,000 packs of illegal cigarettes - with a potential Customs duty of $14,000 and goods-and-services tax of $1,270 - at Woodlands Checkpoint in three separate cases last week.

Last Tuesday, a Singaporean man, 33, was caught with 482 packs of cigarettes hidden in his vehicle's spare tyre, rear seat and backrest. He had bought each carton for $15 in Johor Baru and planned to sell each at $25 to Hougang buyers.

The next day, two Malaysian men, aged 28 and 21, were nabbed separately, with 1,267 and 260 packs, respectively.
