Marijuana and weapons were stopped on the border
Tonight (14/09/12) at the "Uzhgorod" international checkpoint on the Ukrainian-Slovak border, Chop customs officials together with border guards prevented an attempt to export cannabis and 42 rounds of ammunition for firearms from Ukraine.
Three Ukrainians, traveling to EU countries in passenger car «Chevrolet», during customs clearance deliberately chose a "green corridor" - a simplified form of control. However, customs officers and border guards noticed the inappropriate behavior of the driver and decided to check in detail the citizens and the vehicle. Thus, in the luggage compartment, they found a package of greenish-brown vegetable materials with a characteristic specific smell, weighing 11.44 grams. Conducted rapid analysis indicated that the substance is the narcotic drug "cannabis".
Then, the citizen of Ukraine began offering bribes to customs officers. It did not work and then he said that he feels bad and asked permission to go to the toilet room. After his staying there, inspectors checked the room and found 42 firearms ammunition caliber 9 mm and 7.62 mm. The man hid them in a technical niche. Currently the proceedings for the infringement at the border continue.
