Offender tries to send sms: “I am detained at the customs. 40 cartons…”


Some 400 boxes of smuggled cigarettes have been seized by customs officer after a check on a car entering the territory of Bulgaria from Serbia. The cigarettes were found in car's petrol tank. Authorities found a total of 40 cartons of cigarettes, all with Serbian excise stamp.
During the check, the 21-year-old offender, with initials A.M., tried to send an SMS to his ‘business counterpart', who probably had been waiting for him somewhere along the route. The text of the message stated as follows: "I am detained at the customs. 40 cartons..."
The case has been undertaken by a customs inspector.
