Vitsebsk customs officers detained a truck traveling from Latvia through the checkpoint “Urbany”. The truck was transporting video cards and motherboards.
The accompanying documents for a large batch of computer parts (three and a half thousand video cards and motherboards) had an account information. The customs officers decided to check how much the spare parts cost, and it turned out that the documents understated the cost as much as nine times — the real cost of the components was almost 200 thousand dollars.
