Lithuania Unearths Liquor Pipeline from Belarus
Fri Dec 10, 2004 09:34 AM ET

VILNIUS (Reuters) - Lithuanian border guards have unearthed a three-kilometer (2-mile) pipeline for smuggling in moonshine liquor from neighboring Belarus, the guards said on Friday.

The thin plastic pipeline, buried a few centimeters underground, ran under several roads, along a riverbed and ended next to the home of a Lithuanian citizen.

There was no news of any arrests.

It was the fourth such pipeline discovered in the last two years but by far the longest. Moonshine vodka from Belarus is sold on the black market in Lithuania, undercutting prices of legitimate alcohol that have risen sharply since the Baltic nation joined the European Union in May.

Richard,

Yet another proof (sorry) that necessity is the mother of invention!
