A truck full of undocumented cigarettes was caught during the run-up to Christmas by Brazilian border police on the outskirts of Curitiba, a city in state of Paraná on the Paraguayan border.
The truck was found carrying 1.05 million packs of cigarettes with an estimated worth of $1.2 billion.
The vehicle reportedly came from Guiaira, Paraguay, and the illegal goods were supposed to be delivered to the Port of Santos, Brazil’s largest port. According to the Federal Tax Administration, the drivers presented false documents stating that they were delivering soybeans grown in Paraguay.
