2010-10-28

Customs officers at the Kulata border checkpoint seized illegal Welton cigarettes.
A refrigerator truck with Romanian registration arrived at the checkpoint late on Friday. According to the documents presented by the driver, a Romanian national, the shipment consisted of apples aimed from Greece to Romania. The customs officers, however, detected some discrepancies in the data stated in the papers and selected the vehicle for a thorough check-up, which revealed that the apples are used only for camouflage, to hide the illegal tobacco products.
Authorities found around 800 master-boxes of Welton cigarettes.
Work on the case continues.
