The truck driven by a Latvian citizen was pulled over outside Kaunas for a regular check, the Customs Criminal Service said.

The driver did not have any freight documents and could not explain the purpose of his trip, while the truck contained 570,000 packs of Metro cigarettes without excise-duty labels.

Lithuanian authorities believe the cigarettes had been forged in Latvia, as similar freight has been detained in Kaunas and Klaipėda in the past few years.
