Excise officials seized 15,000 packages of smuggled cigarettes in Songkhla’s Hat Yai district on Thursday evening.
The goods were found at a house in a rubber plantation in Tambon Klong U-tapao following a tip-off , said Thammasak La-or-iam, an official of the Excise Area 9 office.
The 25 cartons of cigarettes were packed in 51 cardboard boxes.
No one was in the house when the officials raided.
Thammsak said officials learned the cigarettes were to be kept at the house for two days and then distributed to shops in Songkhla and nearby provinces.
