Customs officers at the Danube Bridge border checkpoint seized 1,260 boxes of cigarettes from a Turkish bus travelling from Istanbul to Bucharest. The bus driver said he personally "loaded" the smuggled goods in different hidden compartments inside the vehicle because he wanted to earn some additional incomes.
During the x-ray scanning authorities found 439 boxes of Assos Slims, 620 boxes of Pall Mall and 210 boxes of LM Red, all with ‘duty-free' sign.
