Operative officers of the State Border Guard Service prevented an attempt to smuggle currencyBACK
Border guards of the Chernivtsi borderguard detachment together with customs officers stopped an attempt to smuggle more than 20 thousand US dollars across the border.
A 35-year-old Ukrainian arrived at the Porubne border crossing point in a Mercedes minibus.
The operative officers of the State Border Guard Service had advance information about the driver and the vehicle. The man also chose the “green corridor” to pass the inspection, proving that he had no items required to declare or restricted from moving across the border.
Subsequently, border guards and customs officers found more than 20 thousand undeclared US dollars among the driver's personal belongings.
The currency was confiscated in the established procedure.
