Trapani, had 85 cartons of smuggled cigarettes on the car: reported

The Trapani financial police seized 22 kilos of contraband cigarettes and reported the man who was in possession of them on the loose. A patrol of the drill group, during a checkpoint, ordered a stop to a passing car. Suspicious of the driver’s excessive nervousness, the military carried out a more in-depth check of the vehicle which made it possible to identify a voluminous cardboard box lying on the back seat inside which 85 cartons of cigarettes were found, without the watermarked strips of State Monopolies, ready to be sold at competitive prices on the market.

The car used for transport was also seized, while the driver of the vehicle was reported on the loose for smuggling of foreign processed tobacco.
