MIRI: An attempt to smuggle in 8,000 litres of diesel with a tanker truck was foiled by Miri Marine Police along Jalan Miri-Bintulu last Saturday.

Region 5 Marine Police commander ACP Zulfikar Mohd Ghazali, who confirmed the case, said the truck driver was also arrested.

In the operation codenamed ‘Ops Kontraban’, the team noticed a tanker truck and stopped it by the roadside for inspection.

“The team later discovered about 8,000 litres of diesel in the tank.

“Further examinations found that the driver failed to produce any valid evidence from the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) for transporting, owning and keeping the controlled substance,” he told.

Zulfikar noted that the driver had committed an offense under the Supply Control Act 1961.

Both the seizures and arrest had been handed over to the KPDNHEP investigating officer for further action.
