10 held on cigar smuggling count

Ten suspects have been arrested for allegedly smuggling foreign cigars and selling them in China, Shanghai police said yesterday.

Police seized more than 1,300 boxes of Habanos, Carlos Torano 1916 Cameroon and Fumar cigars which are estimated to be worth around 30 million yuan (US$4.6 million).

Police in Yangpu District started their investigation in May following tips that some people were selling cigars of renowned brands on the Internet at prices significantly lower than their market value and with no permit to sell tobacco products. Police say the cigars were bought overseas and smuggled into China.
