Customs officers in the Czech city of Plzeň have arrested a gang of alleged cigarette smugglers. The arrest was made on the night of July 26th as the alleged culprits – two Czechs, a Ukrainian and a Pole – were in the process of transferring 840,000 Russian produced cigarettes smuggled into the country in a vehicle with a specially designed secret compartment. According to police, the journey of the smugglers may have led to the cigarettes being smuggled via a recently discovered 700 metre tunnel built between Slovakia and the Ukraine used for smuggling goods, including cigarettes. Around 250,000 crowns of duties were allegedly avoided in relation to the arrest in Plzeň.
