Subic Hot cars recovered in Laguna

Ten imported luxury vehicles smuggled out of the Subic Bay Freeport last week were recovered in two towns in Laguna on Wednesday by agents of the Bureau of Customs (BOC) based here.

Capt. Elpidio Manuel, the Customs Enforcement and Security Service-Customs Police District (ESS-CPD) commander, said a team, headed by his deputy ESS-CPD antismuggling unit chief, Capt. Marlon Alameda, seized in a raid the luxury vehicles, composed of 6 Nissan Serena vans, 3 Mitsubishi Delicas and an Isuzu Big Horn.

Manuel said the vehicles have no documents for importation, and smuggled out of Subic last week from the yard of Four-D Trading Co., a registered locator at the Subic Bay Freeport on Corregidor Highway, Naval Magazine Area.

The 10 luxury vehicles were seized while being sold in two motor shops in Barangay San Vicente, in BiƱan and in Santa Rosa, both in Laguna.

According to Manuel, the recovery of the said vehicles were the result of a surveillance and intelligence networking by agents of ESS-CPD in Subic who noted an increased report of smuggling of luxury vehicles at the Tipo Gate last week.

Andres Salvacion, the Customs-Subic Port deputy collector for assessment, said the recovery of the luxury vehicles saved the government at least P3 million, and foiled the attempt of big-time smugglers to sell it in the black market.

Customs officials said the recovered vehicles, presently impounded at the Customs office in Subic, will be auctioned in favor of the government
