On the night of Saturday, in Transcarpathian region, border guards detained two criminals who were trying to smuggle contraband cigarettes by a trike.

According to the press service of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, border guard detachment detected movement of a small aircraft from Hungary to Ukraine about 3.00 at night.

"Near the ​settlement of Kamyanske in Transcarpathian region, border guards found and arrested a trike and 2 men. The detainees had no IDs, but they said that they were citizens of Ukraine. Nearby, there was a minibus "Opel" loaded with 10 packages of cigarettes. To ensure landing during night flights, the offenders made light marks using fairy lights" - the statement says.

Law enforcement agencies were informed of the detention. The investigation continues.

Recall that until now, the most hyped way of smuggling in Transcarpathia has been the infamous underground tunnel.
