Djemi Amnifu, Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara – East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) authorities foiled an attempt to smuggle four cars, 27 motorcycles and fuel to Timor Leste on Thursday.

NTT Police spokesman Adj. Comr. Agus Santosa said that the confiscated vehicles and fuel had been secured at the Belu Police headquarters.

"It is a joint cross-border operation. The police have coordinated with the military to secure narrow paths along the border area between Belu regency and Timor Leste," Agus told The Jakarta Post.

The cross-border operation has secured two tons of fuel from smuggling attempts in the last two months.
