Suspected gun parts seized by ICA

Recommended Posts

Items suspected to be gun parts were found in a parcel, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said on Friday (July 5).

 

In a Facebook post, ICA said that the items were uncovered when an officer noted anomalies in the scanned images of a parcel at the Airmail Transit Centre on June 29.

 

A total of 20 suspected gun parts were found in the parcel, which was declared as "merchandise".

 

Gun parts are regulated under Chapter 13 of the Arms and Explosive Act.

 

The case has been referred to the police for further investigation, ICA said.

 

The post said: "ICA will continue to conduct security checks on passengers and vehicles to prevent smuggling attempts of undesirable persons, drugs, weapons, explosives or other contraband.

 

"The same methods of concealment used by smugglers may be used by terrorists to smuggle arms and explosives to carry out attacks in Singapore."

there was once went overseas with my friend and he brought back a few light stands then was stopped by ica officer

 

then items was retained for further investigation

 

officer told him that those stands similar to claymore mines

 

I was shocked to hear that

 

but anyway 2 weeks later my friend was told to go collect back items cos it is misunderstanding

 

guess our officer are really very careful 

 

PS. luckily those stands doesn't have " front toward enemy" wordings
