ICA pokes fun at 'waisted' attempt to conceal duty-unpaid cigarettes

Two young male Singaporeans were fined S$600 each for failing to declare two packets of duty-unpaid cigarettes at Woodlands checkpoint on July 19.  

They had attempted to bring the cigarettes into Singapore by concealing the packets along their waistlines. 

In a Facebook post, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said their efforts were 'waisted'. On the night of July 19, the officers at the checkpoint got suspicious when they saw unusual bulges on the two men, and did a check on them. They were found to have stuffed two packets of duty-unpaid cigarettes each along the waistline of their pants.
