SUBIC BAY FREEPORT — The Bureau of Customs (BOC) seized three second-hand luxury cars worth P3 million inside this free port for having been misdeclared as 52 packages of used truck replacement spare parts.

Lawyer Ernelito Aquino, district collector of the Port of Subic, on Monday said the seized sports utility vehicles (SUVs) were a BMW, a Chrysler, and an Audi A6, all consigned to a Korean national identified as Jinseok Jeong of Barangay (village) New Cabalan in Olongapo City.
