The Bulgarian customs officers at Sofia Airport have seized designer drugs in five different shipments in the past few days, the press center of Customs Agency announced.
The drugs weigh 5,2 kg in total.
In a shipment from China, which contained nearly 1 kg of an anticorrosive detergent according to its papers, the customs officers found the substance 4-METHYL ETHCATYNONE.
Another shipment coming from Belgium contained 1,5 kg of synthetic cannabis, instead of an aromatherapy set.
The customs officers seized two shipments from the Netherlands. One of them contained 2 liters of GBL, instead of liquid soap, while the other one - "stimulating" candies and cookies with cannabis.

After the Bulgarian laws were amended, the customs officers can now confiscate the shipments containing designer drugs and their distributors can be held liable.
