Border guards prevent the import of drugs into Belarus
At the Brest checkpoint, border guards prevented an attempt to import 25 blisters with tramadol into Belarus.
Objects prohibited for movement across the border were discovered by a border guard using a service dog in a car of a Russian citizen. The glove box contained 10 plastic containers containing a dark green substance, presumably “snus”. In addition, 25 blisters containing tramadol tablets were hidden in the personal belongings. The man admitted that the snus and the pills belong to him.
The Russian was handed over to the officers of the Moscow District Department of Internal Affairs of Brest for further investigation. The items were withdrawn for examination.
