Last night, border guards of the Chop detachment prevented an attempt of smuggling.
At two o'clock in the morning, a minibus "Citroen" driven by a 24-year-old Transcarpathian arrived at the checkpoint "Tisa". Considering the risk profiles, the border guards together with the customs officers decided to inspect the car in-depth. During the inspection of the vehicle, they found a cache. In a specially made double bottom of the minibus, the man was transporting 425 pairs of men's denim trousers with a total weight of 330 kg. Access to the cache became possible after dismantling of the paneling and plywood sheets, which were fastened with screws to a specially made metal frame. Source.
