MANILA, Philippines — Illegally imported electronic devices worth P20 million were seized at a warehouse in Bulacan, the Bureau of Customs (BOC) said Wednesday.

According to the BOC in a statement, a composite team led by Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service, the Philippine National Police, and the Revenue Collection Monitoring Group uncovered a stash of alleged smuggled Smart Televisions (Smart TVs) and computer system units during a warehouse raid in Malis, Guiguinto, Bulacan.


“Upon inspection, the Implementing Team discovered assorted televisions of different sizes, machines used for lamination, boxes used for packaging, and raw materials for reconditioning and repair,” the BOC said.


The estimated value of these smuggled electronic devices, said BOC, is worth P20 million.

“Following the inventory, the Implementing Team temporarily secured the storage facility with BOC seals and posted 24/7 duty detail at the entrance and exit gates of the warehouse,” the Bureau said.

The BOC said that the owners of the contrabands would then have to present the necessary documents or proper permits, failure to do so would result in the seizure of the goods and forfeiture proceedings in violation of Section 1400 (Misdeclaration in Goods Declaration) in relation to Section 1113 (Property Subject to Seizure and Forfeiture) of Republic Act No. 10863 or the Customs Modernization and Tariff Act. — Maria Liezl Projella, trainee
