Cowboy hats seized on Norwegian border

Norwegian customs seized 540 cowboy hats from a Swedish-registered car on Tuesday. The man who attempted to smuggle them was detained by police.

It was after finding over ten thousand cigarettes and 20 kilos of tobacco that the Norwegian customs made the unusual find, Glomdalen.no reports.

The driver claimed to be on his way to a shop in Oslo with the hats, which are tariffed in Norway.
