275 cartons of cigarettes were seized during a joint patrol yesterday morning. The patrol conducted by personnel of ‘C’ Company Police Reserves, Operation Department , Royal Brunei Police Force and Royal Brunei Armed Forces, RBAF, found a number of suspicious packages left at a forested area in Kampung Junjongan.
According to Police Superintendent Suhairi bin Haji Sukri, Acting Commanding Officer of the Police Reserves, initial investigations believed it was an attempt to smuggle in the contraband using a forest trail to avoid detection. However, the joint operations which are frequently conducted have foiled multiple smuggling attempts such as these.
