Customs officers at the Kalotina customs checkpoint foiled a cocaine smuggling attempt on Wednesday.
A car with Bulgarian registration arrived at the checkpoint in the afternoon. The vehicle was driven by a 33-year-old Bulgarian (man), accompanied by a 24-year-old woman.
During the thorough customs check authorities found three packages wrapped in black nylon in the vehicle's air vent. The packages were full of crystal white substance, which responded to cocaine. The drug haul is estimated at more than BGN 50,000.
The case has been referred to the authorities in charge.
