Stubborn smugglers try to smuggle blank cigarettes twice with one and the same car


2012-04-05

Stubborn smugglers of blank cigarettes failed to cross the border at the Kapitan Andreevo checkpoint for a second time, the press office of the National Customs Agency announced.
Customs officers at the checkpoint noticed an already seen Mercedes car crossing the border but this time with different people in it.
Some 20 days ago customs authorities seized 60,000 blank cigarettes after searching the vehicle.
Not surprisingly the vehicle was selected for a thorough check again. This time the customs officers found 42,000 black cigarettes.
The only thing that was different during the second attempt was the place where the blank cigarettes were hidden.
