  • A number of operations have resulted in the seizure of a vehicle, a boat, communications equipment and over £17,000 worth of cigarettes

In the past week Customs Officers from Gibraltar, working in conjunction with other agencies, have taken part in a number of operations which have resulted in the seizure of a vehicle, a boat, communications equipment and over £17,000 worth of cigarettes.

Three people have been arrested, two of them Spanish. One was detained after a Customs vehicle gave chase to a car, whose driver only stopped when he collided with scaffolding. The car contained 600 cartons of cigarettes.
