This time, contraband cigarettes did not get to Europe
Hoping to make money on cigarette smuggling, our thirty-year-old compatriot lost both the tobacco product, and his vehicle as an "instrument of the crime," the press service of the Chop border guard detachment reported.
Last night, the man tried to illegally transport 250 packs of cigarettes to the EU, when he was stopped by the border guards of the checkpoint "Tisa". Going to Hungary, he hid illegal tobacco products in the fuel tank of his minibus Mercedes. However, experienced border guards found the caches during a joint inspection with customs officers.
According to the current legislation, the cigarettes and the minibuses were seized. The total value of the confiscated items amounted to over 146 thousand hryvnias.
