Customs officers at the Kalotina checkpoint seized skimming devices and a forged ID document.
The ATM draining devices were found in a bus, travelling on regular run from Bulgaria to Germany. After dismantling the last seat in the back of the bus, customs inspectors found a plastic bag hidden inside the seat. There were two plastic panels for ATM, each of which accompanied with electronic plates, a USB-port and batteries. In an envelope, there was a Bulgarian ID card, evidently a fake one. There was a curious mistake on the forged ID card. According to the information on the ID card, it was issued to a person, who became an adult at the age of 10.
