Police confiscate windfall of all types of alcohol

Police again stopped a vehicle that was bringing what appears to have been untaxed alcohol into Costa Rica. The incident was at kilometer 53 of the Interamericana in Paso Canoas.

Police said the driver tried to avoid a checkpoint and a chase ensued.

Police said they confiscated 10 cases of tequila, five cases of Baileys Irish Cream, 35 cases of scotch, five cases of vodka, and assorted other brands and types, including 10 cases of Old Milwaukee. The driver was unable to show that taxes had been paid on the merchandise.
