MANILA, Philippines — Two 40-foot shipping containers containing smuggled cigarettes worth P78 million and 128 master cases and 34 reams valued at P4.5 million were seized at the Port of Subic and off the coast of Zamboanga City on Wednesday.

Bureau of Customs Subic district collector Maritess Martin said the smuggled cigarettes intercepted in Subic were misdeclared as laminating film and consigned to Mysticflare Import and Export Co.

The confiscated cigarettes in Zamboanga were discovered in a jungkong, a Malaysian style watercraft, off the coast of Tumalutap Island. The vessel reportedly came from Sulu.
