Brazilian Police Seize Illegal Phones and E-cigarettes in Bus
Brazilian police have seized illegal smuggled phones and e-cigarettes from two interstate buses, leading to investigations by federal tax authorities.

According to the information released by the Brazilian police on November 4th, authorities have seized two interstate buses on the BR 242 highway in Barreiras city. These buses were found to be transporting illegal mobile phones and e-cigarettes.


According to reports, the first seizure took place at 4 o'clock, when the police discovered 1 iPhone and 20 Redmi phones on board a coach. These goods were found to have been illegally imported, as they were unable to provide any legitimate source or purchase invoices, nor could they provide customs clearance documents.


The bus driver claims that these mobile phones were shipped and have recipients. The goods have been seized and are being handled by the Federal Tax Bureau for the necessary procedures.


In another seizure at 5 pm, two boxes containing a total of 274 e-cigarettes were found on a bus traveling from Goiânia to Vila de Santana. Like previous cases, these items were illegally imported without any accompanying shopping invoices, indicating involvement in smuggling activities. The confiscated goods have been handed over to the Federal Tax Bureau for further investigation.
