JADE stones, which were undeclared and had no proof of customs duties, were found and seized on two occasions 21 November. The stones were confiscated from two cars at the Asia Wall toll gate of the 105th-Mile Trade Zone in northern Shan State’s Muse District. The saloon cars  carrying the jade were confiscated by the district mobile investigation team.
The 117 kilos of jade was estimated to be worth K11.7 million (US$8,994). The two unregistered cars were priced at K15.2 million ($11,685). The jade and the cars were handed over to the Customs Department the following day.
Muse is a busy border trade town near Myanmar’s border with Yunnan Province, China.
