Minsk customs officers found cannabis inside stuffed hedgehog and hare
During the customs control of international postal mail, Minsk-2 customs officers paid attention to the parcel received from Ukraine to a resident of Vitebsk.
The parcel contained two stuffed toys (a hedgehog and a hare) as it was stated in the accompanying documents. A bright postcard with a festive orange bow and an inscription "to my beloved" were attached to the toys. The stitches on the toys were strangely curved, and the color of the thread was clearly different from the color of the toys themselves.
Seven bags with seeds of cannabis were found inside the toys. Seed varieties were indicated on each bag.
Minsk-2 customs initiated the administrative process regarding illegal shipment of cannabis seeds in the international postal mail in accordance with Art. 14.5 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Republic of Belarus.
In January 2018, Minsk-2 customs has already stopped three cases of sending cannabis seeds in international postal items, for 2017 - 29.
