2012-04-09

Some 19,600 pieces of Stadium blank cigarettes were seized by customs officers at the Kapitan Andreevo customs checkpoint from a car with Bulgarian registration travelling to Turkey.
The driver of the vehicle is an 18-year-old young man from the Bulgarian town of Harmanli, who was accompanied by a 48-year-old woman. The two did not declare any goods or currency before the customs. However, the car was selected for a thorough customs check during which authorities found the illegal blank cigarettes with filter.
This is the sixth attempt of blank cigarettes smuggling busted by customs officers at the Bulgarian-Turkish border.
