The estimated street value of the shipment is up to 800,000 euros.

The drugs were found in hidden compartments under the floor and behind the dashboard of a Citroen DS5 driven by a Lithuanian national, identified by his initials D. M., returning home from Spain.

The car was pulled over at the former Kalvarija checkpoint last Sunday.

A pre-trial investigation has been launched.
