THESSALONIKI, Greece — Authorities in Greece say they have arrested at least 20 suspected members of a cigarette smuggling ring, including four police officers.

The arrests were made in the northern port city of Thessaloniki and the nearby Halkidiki area, where police discovered a contraband cigarette manufacturing plant.

Police said Wednesday the crackdown regarding the illicitly manufactured and smuggled cigarettes followed a tip-off from German authorities and several months of surveillance.
