Malaysia Customs seizes smuggled fireworks worth RM90,000

PM KOTA BARU: Rantau Panjang Customs preventive team foiled a plan to smuggle fireworks worth over RM94,000 to Klang Valley when they detained a lorry driver in Kampung Guntong Dalam in Setiu, Terengganu on Sunday.

Kelantan Customs deputy director, Mohd Nasir Yusof said the lorry assistant, however, managed to flee in the 9.15pm incident. He said following a tip off, the team waited at Kampung Guntong and chased the lorry for nearly two kilometres before it stopped.

“The five-tonne lorry was packed 178 boxes of various type of fireworks weighing 4,694 kg. Tax on the fireworks was valued at about RM61,000,” he told reporters today. Nasir said the items were smuggled in from a neighbouring country for the coming Chinese New Year.
