Customs dog sniffs out 30,000 smuggled cash out of Greek sailor


A  customs sniffer dog has sniffed out 30,000 cash from a Greek sailor trying to smuggle it into Greece, reports Kathimerini newspaper.

According to the report, the bust happened at Athens Airport as the sailor  arrived on a flight from Dubai.

'The cash, in 50 and 100 euro notes and 500 in US dollars, was hidden in packs of cigarettes, which were subsequently plastic wrapped back into cartons, as well as in packs of tobacco.

'His plans were upset by Bart, a specially trained sniffer dog in the service of the customs unit of the Independent Public Revenue Authority, who sniffed out the cash.'

Travellers from a country outside the EU must declare any amounts exceeding 10,000 euros upon arrival in Greece.
