Hungarian border control agents seized heroin worth EUR 3.5 million stashed in the boot of a car and arrested two Bulgarian nationals, authorities announced Wednesday, AFP reported.

The heroin was discovered at the Nagylak border with Romania, they said.

Officials checking the boot became suspicious when the spare tyre appeared oversized and out of position, a Hungarian Border Control Agency spokeswoman told AFP.

On removing the wheel, they discovered fresh welding under the tyre which they broke, leading to the discovery of 134 packages containing more than 70 kilogrammes (154 pounds) of heroin worth HUF 1 billion (EUR 3.5 million/USD 4.22 million).

„Two Bulgarian nationals are in custody following a roadside spot check by border patrols on their Fiat type car with Bulgarian number plates,” the spokeswoman said.
