According to the Customs Criminal Service, the Russian cigarettes were found in a Volvo truck on Saturday when it tried to go via Lithuania from Kaliningrad to Moscow. Customs officers x-rayed the truck and discovered 6 million cigarettes.
The driver, a Russian citizen, was detained. A court in Kaunas, Lithuania's second-largest city, later sanctioned his arrest for one month.
The Customs Criminal Service has launched a pre-trial investigation into the incident.
