Smuggled cash seizures soar at Italy borders

Text size Aa Aa

Italian police say seizures of cash at airports and border checkpoints have soared this year.

More than 41 million euros was confiscated during the first seven months, a 78 per cent increase on the same period in 2011.

The haul is part of a crackdown on tax evasion.

Specially trained dogs have sniffed out cash stashed inside bags, napkins and even underwear.
