The seized cartons of cigarettes

HM Customs and Excise in Gibraltar were undertaking an operation on the eastern side of the Rock and stopped a local vehicle and on searching it found 300 cartons of cigarettes.

They then searched a garage nearby which was believed to be used by the two Spanish nationals found in the vehicle and discovered and confiscated a further 1,500 cartons of cigarettes.

The total haul of 1,800 cartons is valued at more than £33,000 and investigations are continuing to try to identify the origin of the cigarettes which are a Belgium brand also manufactured in Peru.
