Sandakan Maritime Enforcement Chief, Captain A. Razak Abd Rahman, said a locally registered vessel with a skipper and a crewman on board were stopped as they headed towards a neighbouring country.
Further inspections led to the discovery of 3,000 litres of crude palm oil filled into the vessel.
Razak said further inspections showed they did not have any documents to transport the items, while the crewman also failed to produce any identification documents.
He said all were escorted to the jetty for further investigations.
