The Customs smashed a smuggling case in the waters near Long Kwu Chau earlier (15th) and seized 240 metric tons of frozen meat and 600 boxes of fruits, with an estimated market value of about 20 million yuan.
During the operation, a total of 22 people were arrested and a cargo ship and three tugboats were detained for investigation. This is the first time that the customs has discovered a case of criminals suspected of using a barge to smuggle high-value fruits.
