    SINGAPORE - What were registered as decorative items and picture frames turned out to be cartons of duty-unpaid cigarettes.

    Singapore Customs said in a press release on Saturday (Dec 10) that officials were keeping a close watch as a shipment imported from China- declared as decorative items - was delivered to a self-storage facility.

    As officials swooped in on the self-storage facility located in the north-eastern part of Singapore on Dec 7, they discovered 3,438 cartons of duty-unpaid cigarettes that were hidden in 79 boxes of picture frames.

    A second raid in the same facility recovered another 2,197 cartons of duty-unpaid cigarettes.

    The total amount of duty and Goods and Services Tax (GST) involved amounted to about $437,280, and $44,020 respectively.

    Investigations are ongoing.

    Buying, selling, conveying, delivering, storing, keeping, having in possession or dealing with duty-unpaid goods are serious offences under the Customs Act and the GST Act.
