On 16th February, the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) caught a man attempting to smuggle cigarettes into Singapore by hiding them in a hollowed-out loaf of bread.
The unfortunate fellow was a 38-year-old Malaysian motorcyclist.
According to the ICA’s Facebook post, five packets of duty-unpaid cigarettes were concealed in a hollowed-out loaf of bread and one in his pocket.
The loaf was placed in the motorcycle basket and another packet was concealed in the padding of his helmet. The case was referred to Singapore Customs for further investigations.
The ICA very aptly called it ‘a plan gone a-rye’.
