After a seizure of 213 kg on June 17, customs officers from the Dijon interior surveillance brigade have just made a new seizure of herbal cannabis.
Thursday, June 30, the customs brigade of Dijon, in control on the A31, selects at the level of the area of ​​Gevrey-Chambertin a Spanish truck. The driver, of Spanish nationality, presents transport documents for 10 pallets of wine between Spain and Germany.
The dog handler team intervenes on the truck: the anti-narcotics dog then strongly marks the trailer from the outside several times.
