Border guards in Lithuania have dug up a pipeline from neighboring Belarus that was used for smuggling in liquor. It is the forth such pipeline to be found in the last two years. The pipe made of plastic stretched for over 2 miles and went under roads and along a riverbed.

VILNIUS (Reuters) - Lithuanian border guards have unearthed a three-kilometre (2-mile) pipeline for smuggling in moonshine liquor from neighbouring Belarus.

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

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.

It seems that there is a lively black market for vodka in Lithuania. Part of the reason is that legitimate liquor has risen in price since the country joined the European Union. It is amazing that no one was them laying out this buried pipeline laid out between the two countries. No doubt bribes and payoffs were the order of the day. Cheers.
