The 36-year-old Romanian arrived at the checkpoint by a passenger car "Ford" and chose the green lane for crossing the border. During the operative and preventive measures against tobacco transportation and control measures in the first line, border guards suspected that objects and materials hidden from border control were being transported in this vehicle. Therefore, the said vehicle was taken out of the common queue.
