The Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) seized 3,000 cartons of duty-unpaid cigarettes at the Woodlands checkpoint from a Malaysia-registered truck on Thursday.
The ICA said in a statement that the cigarettes were found concealed among the consignment declared to contain assorted biscuits, during the course of checks.
It added that 33-year-old Malaysian driver was handed over to Singapore Customs for investigation, along with the seized cigarettes and truck.
Reports say that the vehicle, which is used in the commission of such offences, is liable to be forfeited.
According to ICA, the total duty and Goods and Services Tax evaded amounted to about S$232,800 (RM733,3420) and S$17,250 (RM54,337) respectively.
