KUALA LUMPUR: Some RM500,000 worth of contraband cigarettes and fireworks were seized following a raid on a house in Kampung Pasir, Rasah, Negri Sembilan.
General Operation Force's Central Brigade commander Senior Asst Comm Muhammad Abdul Halim said a 28-year-old man was also arrested during the raid at 5.12pm on Monday (Jan 10).
"We seized 35 boxes of cigarettes, 98 boxes of fireworks and a car used to distribute and sell the contraband items.
"The items seized amounted to RM509,350," he said in a statement on Tuesday (Jan 11).
With the arrest and seizure, police believe a syndicate selling such contraband items around Seremban has been crippled, he added.
"The house in Kampung Pasir was believed to have been used as a storage area.
"We urge those with information on any acts of smuggling contraband items to contact the police as soon as possible," SAC Muhammad said.
