The facility included 185,000 packs of cigarettes, estimated at over 500,000 euros, as well as dozens of euros in cash. The authorities suspect the money came from illicit operations.

This is the second similar operation by Pagėgiai border guards in the Kaunas district in March, the State Border Guard Service said.
