2012-09-26

Sofia customs officers have uncovered a depot for contraband cigarettes in the village of Svetovrachene, announced the National Customs Agency.
They identified a person who used two properties to deal with contraband cigarettes. They detained the person when contraband cigarettes were supplied to his place of residency. They raided the property and found more contraband cigarettes. It was irrefutably proven that the person used a second property as a depot. There the customs officers found a third shipment of cigarettes without excise stamps.
A total of 53,000 contraband cigarettes were seized.
The case is under investigation.
