MMEA seizes smuggled beer worth RM105,000 from speedboat

KOTA KINABALU: Maritime officials in Labuan seized more than RM100,000 worth of beer from a speedboat following a tip-off on Saturday.
However, the two suspects on board the boat managed to escape when they noticed that they were being tailed in the 1.15am incident.
Labuan Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) director Kapt Che Adnan Md Isa said his team was conducting patrols around the area when they saw a speedboat heading towards Menumbok not far away.
"They had been tailing the speedboat for about 10 minutes when the suspects noticed our men and sped off," he said.
He said the suspects ditched the speedboat when they were near the shore and fled.
"Upon inspection, we found cartons of smuggled beer of various brands in the boat amounting to RM105,000," Adnan said.
He said the seized beer and boat worth about RM250,000 have been brought to the Labuan maritime base for investigations.
He urged the public to provide information to the authorities to prevent crimes at sea such as smuggling activities.
