Tax police found 75,000 containers of rum and Coke in a truck at the Paso Canoas border crossing, they said.
The truck was supposed to be carrying electric appliances, including mixers, irons, blenders, microwaves, washers and kitchen ranges, said police. But the amount of the appliances was overstated, they said.
Tax police confiscated the entire load as well as the truck, they said. The truck was headed to Alajuela, they added.
