Man in BMW full of illegal curry puffs, kueh fails to stop at Tuas checkpoint .




Despite being directed to another area for further checks, he continued driving his luxury car past Tuas Checkpoint, sparking a manhunt by the police. They found the man and his 7-series BMW sedan almost two hours later at Pioneer North Road and arrested him. The police officers found more 100 boxes and plastic bags packed in the boot and on the passenger seats. But instead of contraband such as drugs or illegals, they contained such foodstuff as curry puff and kueh-kueh (local pastries). An Immigrations & Checkpoint Authority spokesman said the 47-year-old suspect arrived at the checkpoint from Malaysia at 12.15pm on Tuesday. The New Paper understands that he had a valid permit to import food from Malaysia, but had underdeclared the quantity in his car. He was directed to a designated bay area for further inspection but apparently misunderstood the instructions and drove away.
