Cigarette smugglers have come up with a new way of getting their goods into the country, by sending them on a cruise down the river.
Last night the border police caught a large package on camera floating down the River Uh near the village of Lekarovce, reports SITA news agency. When police officers hauled the package out of the river, they found it contained smuggled cigarettes, kept afloat with empty plastic bottles.
The package contained 49 cartons of cigarettes bearing seals from Moldava and 18 cartons from Ukraine. The case is now being dealt with by the customs authority.
