2 arrested in illicit cigarette bust

Customs officers yesterday arrested two men, aged 29 and 45, and seized about 1.3 million illicit cigarettes concealed in electric water heaters in a unit in a Kwun Tong industrial building.

The cigarettes had a total market value of about $3.3 million with a duty potential of about $2.2 million.

Customs' investigations found that a syndicate concealed illicit cigarettes in large electric water heaters and repacked the cigarettes at a designated place for speedy distribution to buyers.
