Record number of drug seizures

Sweden's border police made a record number of drug seizures last year, according to new figures from the Swedish Customs Authority.

Over 7000 seizures were made, over half of those were drugs sent from abroad via the postal service, but the largest individual seizures were made through searches of trucks and cars passing through Sweden's borders, news agency TT reports.
