Bulgarian Officials Seize 22 Kilograms Of Heroin Bound For Bosnia

Bulgarian authorities have seized almost 22 kilograms of heroin bound for Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Bulgarian Customs Headquarters said that customs inspectors found the drugs in a car at the Kapitan Andreevo border checkpoint on August 9.

A press release issued the same day said the heroin was travelling from Istanbul to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The heroin's estimated street value is more than 1.5 million dollars.

It was hidden in 23 packages in the car's gasoline tank. The car was driven by a 44-year-old Bosnian national.

The capture of just some of the 5,000 tons (UN estimate of Afghan production) of heroin flown out of Afghanistan each year on US military transports - the generals will not be pleased about this setback.
