Keelung Customs (KLC) just announced its major seizures of 2021 which included illicit drugs, drug precursors, and Chinese mushrooms, etc. "The interceptions prevented illegal contraband from entering the country," KLC said. The agency stated that their front line officers are skilled at cracking down most stealthy and surreptitious smuggling attempts and are dedicated to their missions in safeguarding border security and public welfare. "We will continue strengthening our detection capability and enforcement efforts," KLC stressed.

"Close cooperation with other border agencies, such as prosecutors offices, police, Investigation Bureaus, and Coast Guard Administration, and of course, the public, is also crucial for effectively suppressing illegal smugglings, KLC added.
