Alleged Diaper Smugglers Busted In Sweden

Swedish police said a pair of Lithuanian men were caught trying to smuggle more than 25,000 diapers from Norway to eastern Europe's black market.

JAMTLAND, Sweden, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Perhaps they should have tried the brown -- or light green -- market, instead.

Swedish police said they arrested two men accused of attempting to smuggle more than 25,000 diapers from Norway to eastern Europe.

Investigators said the Lithuanian nationals, whose identities were not released, were stopped by police in Jamtland, and officers soon discovered their van was hauling 25,175 fresh disposable diapers.

Police said the diapers were purchased in Norway, where diapers cost less than $1 apiece, and were likely designed for the black market in eastern Europe, where the products can retail for considerably more money.
