Putting The Cart Before The Smuggler
A would-be smuggler was arrested after trying to outrun border police with £300,000 of cigarettes in a horse and cart. He was crossing Romania's northern border with the Ukraine, carrying nearly 100,000 packets of cigarettes and tobacco. A policeman said, "Outrunning our officers was never a possibility - even if he had a thoroughbred racehorse strapped to his cart."
