Every day, border guard’s vigilance is challenged by those who try to smuggle cigarettes or other goods in the country. Here are some of the most unusual hiding places discovered:
1. Hollowed tree trunks.
Border guard spokesman Arkhip Glazkov said:
“As a result of a random check we discovered one of the trunks appeared to have been tampered with, and after looking more closely it was found that the tree trunk and been hollowed out and packed with cigarettes, and then the end of the trunk had been replaced to cover up the crime.
In fact it was almost impossible to see the difference, but officers noticed that some of the logs seemed incredibly light compared to the others, and it was then that they discovered the fraud.”
