The Coast Guard discovered 2,700 crates of contraband cigarettes on board a Bolivia-flagged freighter sailing in the Thermaikos Bay off the northern city of Thessaloniki, it was announced on Thursday.
The vessel had set sail from Famagusta, in the Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus, and was destined for Varna, Bulgaria.

The freighter and its cargo were seized while its five crew members are in custody.
