Every week we arrest several people for illegal trading. Mainly they bring in small quantities of cigarettes and vodka to sell in local markets, and may cross over several times a day. We call them "ant" smugglers.
They are difficult to control, because it is OK to bring in a few packets of cigarettes and a bottle of alcohol, if they are for personal use.
Sometimes we sweep the market in the nearby town of Biala Podlaska (pictured here). The culprits are mainly middle-aged or elderly women.
