A 45-year-old American attempting to smuggle 627 grams of gold valued at Rs.2.5 million into Sri Lanka from Singapore was arrested by customs officials at the Bandaranaike International Airport last night.

Investigations revealed he is an American businessman engaged in gold business and collects gold from African countries.

    If he is an original American citizen better leave him alone, or if he is an Indian or a Sri Lankan holding the green card, is worth investigating.

    Custom Officers are mostly capable of posing themselves for photographs as in a studio.

    I thought Americans don't commit crimes( from what I hear from US officials).

    Thomas Friday, 07 June 2013 06:12 AM

    He is bringing foreign exchange in the form of Gold, why trouble him.

    lal Friday, 07 June 2013 06:23 AM

    He would have taken more out than what he brought into the country.

    He didn't bring gold jewellery, he smuggled gold nuggets. And the pics shown are of an old detection.
