The Guardia Civil have stopped three passengers trying to smuggle in thousands of contraband cigarettes into Spain, by not declaring them when passing through customs at Alicante-Elche airport.   

Officers say that the three separate incidents over the last fortnight totalled up to nearly three thousand packets which would have fetched around 10 thousand euros on the black market, with none of the packets having approved taxation marking on them. Two of those detained had jetted in from Amsterdam.
