Illegal R134a found in car boot

GERMANY: Ten illegal disposable cylinders of R134a were discovered in a passenger car stopped by customs officers from Zwiesel, southern Bavaria.

The car was travelling north on the A3 autobahn, which crosses Germany, linking the Netherlands in the northwest to Austria in the south.

The boot of the car was found to contain the 10 refrigerant cylinders with Chinese and Serbian markings, 2,700 cigarettes and 180 boxes of branded perfumes.

The occupants were unable to provide evidence such as invoices, customs clearance or proof of origin, and a criminal case was initiated against the driver on suspicion of tax evasion.
