Truckload of alcohol intercepted

Fuerza Pública officers said they determined Wednesday morning that the paperwork presented by a truck driver was false. So they confiscated some 2,500 cases of alcohol.

Police said officers stopped a truck near Paso Canoas and immediately called in the tax police from the Ministerio de Hacienda.

Costa Rica maintains a high tax on alcoholic beverages, so smuggling from Panamá is a continual problem for police.

Wow! This is the haul of intercepted alcohol.
