Transcarpathian customs officers found a cache with hidden cigarettes (PHOTOS)

At the customs post "Tisa" of the Transcarpathian customs, inspectors prevented illegal export of tobacco products hidden from customs control in the luggage compartment of a minibus.

The violator was a 61-year-old resident of Chernivtsi region, who orally and in writing assured in the customs control zone that he was not moving anything hidden in a Mercedes-Benz minibus. But based on the analysis and risk assessment, customs officers began thorough inspection of the vehicle using such technical means as a screwdriver, a mirror, a lantern and an endoscope. As a result, they found 40 blocks of cigarettes of different brands hidden under the decorative covering of the ceiling and doors of the minibus luggage compartment.

A report on violation of customs rules was drawn up under Part 1 of Art. 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine. The hidden 400 packs of cigarettes worth over UAH 15 thousand and the minibus "Mercedes-Benz Sprinter" (made in 2012) worth UAH 350 thousand were confiscated. The case is to be sent to court.
