LIMBANG: A Brunei national was arrested early yesterday morning for trespassing into the Tedungan Immigration, Customs, Quarantine (ICQS) Complex here.
The suspect aged 35, was detained at 1.15am by a Rela personnel and brought to the Bambangan police station.
Limbang District Police chief Superintendent Mohd Bukhori Saffai said the suspect had trespassed into the Tedungan ICQS by climbing and damaging the fence opposite the Rela station at the departure section of the complex.
“Initial investigation found that the suspect was not on time to return to Brunei because the Malaysia-Brunei border closes at 12pm.
“The suspect came in a car with a friend who slept in the car, while he climbed the fence in an attempt to return to Brunei before he was arrested earlier this morning,” he told the media yesterday.
Mohd Bukhori said the fence of the ICQS was damaged in the incident.
