Russians turn off vodka smuggling pipeline

Mile-long tube carried moonshine to Latvia

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

Russian customs officers have unearthed a mile-long pipeline through which ingenious smugglers were pumping home-made vodka to Latvia, Ananova reports.

The tube was discovered six feet underground in Buholovo by workmen digging holes to plant trees. Local border cop Yakov Kabanov said: "We had our suspicions that there was someone running hooch across the border here but we could never figure out how they managed it.

"They probably would have got away with it for decades if those trees hadn't been planted as well."

The two rented houses connected by the pipeline were empty when raided, but police in Buholovo are reportedly "questioning people" about the illegal plumbing operation. ®
