Macedonian Customs arrest smuggler entering from Albania with 273kg of Marijuana
Monday, 06 March 2017


A truck driven by N.D. (40) was arrested at the Macedonia-Albania border crossing near Struga after Macedonian customs officers scanning his truck uncovered artificially created areas packed with 273kg of marijuana.

The Volvo semi truck with license plate OH9622AB was carrying wood, however that appeared more of a mask for the real valuable cargo.

Nearly 100% of the drugs in Macedonia enter through Albania, sometimes with trucks as in this case, but very often via horses through illegal mountainous crossing.

The driver was arrested and the marijuana seized. 

Police have opened a case and are trying to find out who was the source of the order and the operations behind it.
