Itatiaia – A truck transporting cigarettes had its cargo seized in the early hours of Monday (13). The seizure took place at km 325, on Via Dutra, on the road towards São Paulo, in Itatiaia.

According to the Federal Highway Police, during the inspection, the driver presented an invoice stating that he was transporting 100 boxes with 500 packs of cigarettes each, for a total of 1,000,000 (one million) cigarettes.

But, when the agents went to check the cargo compartment, they observed that the quantity transported was much larger. Therefore, the police sent the truck with the load of cigarettes to the Nhangapi State Revenue Office. There it was found that both the quantity and the value stated on the invoice were lower than the cargo actually transported.

In total, the PRF found that 850 boxes containing 500 packs of cigarettes were transported, that is, a total of 425,000 (four hundred and twenty-five thousand) packs, resulting in a total of 8,500,000 (eight million and five hundred thousand) cigarettes.

The cargo was seized and, according to the PRF, the appropriate tax measures were taken.
