Through Quentin Marais
A few days after a first chase that had a seizure of 440 cartridges in Ariège, nearly 350 additional were seized by the customs officers of Frouzins (Haute-Garonne), Sunday 24 October 2021, at 7.15 am. They too had to hunt fugitives before getting their hands on the booty.
An embankment stops them in their course
As this first Sunday of All Saints holidays begins, the Frouzins customs officers check a first vehicle, at Autérive (Haute-Garonne). But other agents, who were present in support, notice that another car is turning around after seeing the dam.
The customs officers then decide to go in pursuit of him. The fugitives do not engage on the brake, enter a residential area then a dead end. Stopped by an embankment, occupants abandon their vehicle and flee on foot.
Not surprisingly, officers are not dispatched empty-handed, since 347 cartridges (very precisely) are found in the cockpit, coming from Andorra. Contraband tobacco destined for the Toulouse parallel market?
