Smugglers go to any length to hide their substances from view. It is reported that ten people were arrested in Dec 2012 in raids in the UK and Luxembourg in a suspected £50m tax fraud by an international tobacco smuggling ring. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-20585696)

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) believe the gang used microwave ovens and other white goods to smuggle tonnes of illegal tobacco into the UK.
