OFFICERS from the National Police stopped four cars in La Linea de la Concepcion and discovered 26,600 packs of smuggled cigarettes.

The officers were convinced that there was something underhanded going on when they saw the four vehicles leaving La Linea and heading towards San Roque in what appeared to be a convoy and all of the drivers were using mobile phones.

When all four cars were stopped and searched, the cigarettes which had no customs seals and are valued at €50,000 were discovered.

All four who were arrested were Moroccans living in Spain and are believed to be part of a group involved in tobacco smuggling.
