Customs officers detained 70,000 pieces (3500 boxes) of smuggled cigarettes at Customs checkpoint Zlatarevo. Cigarettes are revealed on June 7, 2017 when a minibus enters the state. The vehicle has a Bulgarian registration, driven by a Bulgarian citizen. Customs officers diverted the vehicle for a detailed customs check. During the inspection, they found that there were hidden cigarettes with Macedonian excise labels in artificially created secret places - in the floor, at the back of one of the seats and at the rear of the van. Cigarettes are trademarks of "Trokadero Slims" (1500 boxes) and "Eva Slims" (2000 boxes).
A pre-trial proceeding  was  initiated in connection with the case of the Southwest Customs House.
