Illegal cigarettes were found in the wheel of a van
At the checkpoint "Tisa", border guards together with customs officers found a cache of tobacco products in the car of a citizen of Ukraine.
This morning, a minibus "Mercedes-Benz" arrived at the checkpoint to leave Ukraine. During the border and customs control, the driver said that he was not carrying any hidden objects and goods.
However, during the inspection of the vehicle, a dog trained to find tobacco gave a signal.
Border guards decided to do an in-depth inspection of the car. As a result, they found in the spare wheel of the car 190 packs of domestically produced cigarettes "MarlboroGold", "GlamourAzure", "WinstonBlueSuperSlims".
The counterfeit tobacco products and the wheel were seized by customs officers. The total cost of the goods is about 5,000 UAH.
