Gunshots fired to stop three cigarette-smugglers

The Suceava Border Police had to fire three gunshots on Thursday to stop three people who were trying to cross the border with several bulky packages containing smuggled cigarettes, Mediafax reports.

One member of the group, a 23-year-old, from Vicovu de Sus, was caught and seven smuggled cigarette-containers were found in the area, which were seized.

“Investigation is in progress in this case, in order to track down all the people involved and to take the legal measures needed,” the spokesman for the Suceava County Border Police, inspector Ilie Poroch Seritan, stated, adding that special measures had been taken at the checkpoint.
