Customs officers at Customs Southwest Office seized 800 master cases of illegal cigarettes hidden under sawdust. When checking a truck, traveling from Greece to Bulgaria through Ilinden border checkpoint the customs officers found that instead of the declared goods "sawdust" the truck was loaded mainly with smuggled cigarettes. The boxes were covered with a thin layer of sawdust and traveled with Bulgarian truck type "gondola" specially designed for transporting bulk cargo.
