Macedonian Police seized eight tons of cigarettes after inspection check of a storehouse belonging to the company "Popeco Tabak", an authorized cigarette wholesaler for Eastern Macedonia.

Police sources confirmed for Makfax late Thursday that the owner of the Strumica-based Popeco Tabak was detained in the action, conducted as a part of the crackdown operation codenamed "Ashes" .
