Some 2,916 kilos of smuggled silver jewellery have been seized by customs officers at the Malko Tarnovo customs checkpoint after a check on a passenger's bus.
The bus was with Turkish registration, travelling from Turkey to Bulgaria. The smuggled silver jewellery was found under the back seats.
Customs authorities drew a statement for customs violation to the bus driver - a 23-year-old Bulgarian with initials Sh.A. He said he was given a package by a stranger in Istanbul, who wanted the package to be delivered to another person in Varna.
