The tax police said Thursday that they had intercepted 378 kilos of vitamins and natural supplements that had come into the county from the United States.
The confiscation was made in a customs warehouse in Heredia. Much of the material was in bulk, said the Policía de Control Fiscal. They said there were 416,997 units of the confiscated material.
In addition to not being approved for use in the country, the police said that the shipment was undervalued for duty purposes.
