Customs officers thwart attempt of smuggling antiquities

A 33-year-old Moldovan was detained by prosecutors for trying to smuggle ancient coins, bills and post stamps through the western customs point of Leuseni.

The customs officers uncovered, in his car, 800 coins, 12 banknotes and 6 postmarks. Some coins date to ancient times.

He faces imprisonment from 3 to 10 years, as the History Museum is to provide expertise to the antiquities that he wanted to take to Moldova.
