During the past 24hrs, Transcarpathian border guards stopped four attempts of smuggling
Four attempts of tobacco smuggling were stopped by border guards of the Mukachevo detachment during the past 24 hours on the border with Romania. In three cases, at the checkpoint "Dyakove", border guards together with the fiscal service officers detected hidden cigarettes in the spare wheels of travelers. In all three cases, Romanian citizens tried to smuggle tobacco products. The tobacco products were seized from the offenders, and from one of them, in addition to the cigarettes, they also seized the car, because the foreigner tried to hide cigarettes under the lining of one of the doors of the vehicle. A total of 600 packs of cigarettes were found. The total value of the seized cigarettes was more than 26 thousand hryvnias.
Another attempt to move almost three thousand packs of cigarettes across the border was stopped by the border guards of the department "Dilove". While patroling, the border guards noticed a group of people with packages moving toward the border. Having noticed the border guards, the men fled leaving the packages, which contained 2,880 packs of cigarettes.
The tobacco products were delivered to the border guard department "Dilove" and will be subsequently handed over to the SFS employees.
