Concealed and undeclared US dollars bills, having repeating numbers, were discovered by the customs officials at Danube Bridge Rousse - Giurgiu BCP. The currency was found in a passenger van, traveling from Bulgaria to Ukraine with a driver and one passenger inside it. After the two persons have completed Currency Declaration Forms which seemed very confusing to the customs officials, a detailed customs search of the vehicle was initiated. During the inspection, the customs officials found concealed and undeclared USD 6500. Some of the dollar bills had repeating numbers, which led to the doubt over its authenticity.

A customs investigation officer and experts of the Chief Directorate "Border Police" were acquainted with the details of the case. A Pre-trial procedure was initiated.
