Brazilian Police Seize Smuggled E-Cigarettes from Paraguay
Brazilian police seized a batch of smuggled e-cigarettes from Paraguay during a operation, with 508 items confiscated.

According to reports from Brazilian news media on October 16, the police in the state of Rolândia seized a shipment of smuggled e-cigarettes from Paraguay during the "Padroeira" operation. The merchandise was being transported through a tourist bus, which had 22 passengers on board at the time.


The police of the state of Rolandia intercepted this bus on PR-986 highway in Brazil. None of the passengers on the bus claimed ownership of the goods, and there were no labels indicating the owner of the items. The bus driver stated that he had no knowledge of the contents of the bags and was solely hired to transport the bus to its destination, with the items being part of his cargo.


During a routine inspection of the bus's cargo hold, authorities discovered several bags, including e-cigarettes, which are prohibited items in Brazil. Police suspect that the cosmetics were being used as a cover for smuggling purposes.


In the end, the police seized a total of 508 e-cigarettes, and all smuggled items have been sent to the federal tax office warehouse in Londrina.
