Polish customs officers and border guards detained a truck of 400 kg of smuggled amber. The driver freely crossed the Ukrainian border in the Volyn region. The incident occurred at the Dorogusk checkpoint.
After passing a special scanner, hundreds of kilograms of stones were found in the truck body. The driver said that Ukrainian customs officers had freely let him across the border. Currently, the truck and cargo are arrested. The cost of amber is estimated at more than 50 million UAH.
It should be noted that Polish border guards are increasingly recording attempts to create smuggling channels through checkpoints in Volyn. Local customs officers let trucks without checking. A couple of weeks ago, at the Yagodyn checkpoint, a car with 1,300 kg of amber was arrested.
