Two people have been charged with attempting to illegally smuggle 61 kilos of contraband tobacco from Agrinio to Volos, local authorities said Tuesday.

The two suspects, a 34-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman, were accused of packaging the tobacco into three cardboard boxes and storing it at Agrinio’s main bus station with the intention of transporting them to Volos.

Following a tip-off, police located the boxes at the bus station’s warehouse before they were delivered to their intended destination. The case file will be submitted to a prosecutor in Agrinio.
