Arrested for attempted bribery

LA LÍNEA A Spanish man was arrested at the border earlier this week after he offered a Guardia Civil officer money to turn a blind eye. According to The Gibraltar Chronicle he picked the wrong man. He wanted to get three boxes (boxes, not cartons) through the Spanish Customs at the border. Instead he was arrested for attempted bribery. This is only one of several incidents that are part of the GC's ongoing crackdown on tobacco smuggling. They have increased roadblocks coming out of La Línea and achieved a good measure of success, according to local sources.
