Heroin haul at Serbian border

Police arrested a 63-year-old English man on suspicion of drug possession after the man attempted to cross into Hungary from Serbia Tuesday evening.

National Tax and Customs officers searched the man’s vehicle after noticing signs that it had been converted. Guards found over 22 grams of heroin in a space that had been built beneath the front seats.

Szeged police impounded the heroin, which they say has a black-market value of around Ft 264 million.
