Malaysia Royal Customs Department announced today of a massive coup against smugglers.
Assistant Director of Enforcement (Enforcement) Datuk Paddy Abd Halim, said the seizure at Port Sepanggar was the largest in Sabah this year and worth a whooping RM2.5 million.
Among the contraband confiscated from the 62 containers were some 853,776 liters of beers, or 2,405,800 cans of beers!
That’s indeed a lot of beers. A typical household in Malaysia consumed about 216 liters of water daily and 853,776 liters of water would sustain a household for more than 10 years!
How did the Royal Customs destroy the beers? Well, they rent a steamroller, lay them on pavement – run the steamroller over them (see video).
Datuk Paddy said the case was being investigated under Section 133 (1) (a) and Section 135 (1) (a) of the Customs Act 1967.
