The X-ray equipment revealed smuggling, for which the foreigner now faces criminal liability.

A Chinese citizen tried to bring about 200 grams of gold sand from Blagoveshchensk, Amur Region of Russia, to China. This was reported on the Telegram channel of the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation.

A 48-year-old foreigner was reportedly detained at Blagoveshchensk airport when he tried to board a plane.

“During the examination, more than 185 grams of metal particles made of an alloy of gold and silver were found on him. The man hid some of them in a smartphone case, and mixed the rest with personal hygiene products – shampoo, cream and toothpaste The value of smuggled precious metals exceeded one million,” it said in the message.

The detainee told customs officials that he knew he was breaking the law.

“For large-scale smuggling of strategically important goods and resources, a citizen of the People’s Republic of China faces criminal liability,” the Federal Customs Service said in a statement.

Let’s recall that in July, the border guards of the Bolshaya Bychkov branch of the Mukachevo detachment discovered a drone at a distance of 800 meters from the border, where unknown people tried to smuggle tobacco contraband into neighboring Romania.

It was earlier reported that border guards stopped a tanker with smuggled cigarettes.

They tried to smuggle a plane into Ukraine from Romania.
