New hotline for reporting smuggling

1:27 min

Swedish Customs are urging people with any information about cases of smuggling to call their new hotline at 90114.

The 24-hour hotline, started on Monday, allows people leave their information anonymously with staff at the agency's intelligence and communication center. 

Lars Kristoffersson, the head of law enforcement at Swedish Customs, says the agency previously had several ways the public could get in touch.

Now, the government agency hopes the new telephone number will make it easier to funnel the public's tips to the right place.
