A record amount of heroin that was seized by Czech authorities at the weekend came in a truck from Turkey, customs officials told a news conference in Prague on Tuesday. The authorities discovered 182 kilos of the illicit substance in a warehouse in Prague, hidden among kitchenware shipped to a trade company registered in the capital. The drug was destined for the Czech market, the officials said, adding that the driver of the truck had no knowledge of the contraband. The customs authorities said they had not been tipped off about the shipment but traced it on the basis of an analysis of transportation patterns of goods from outside the EU.
