China's customs authority announced on Tuesday that it solved 1,360 smuggling crimes last year, with the total value in smuggled items exceeding 25 billion yuan.

Additionally, tax evasion from these crimes amounted to 3.58 billion yuan, an official with the General Administration of Customs (GAC) said.

Nearly 3,300 people involved in smuggling had received criminal punishments last year, an official said, speaking anonymously.

The official also said 389 smuggling cases involved reporting lower prices, while another 179 cases were related to the processing trade. (One U.S. dollar equals roughly 6.6 yuan.)
