ZHENGZHOU, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- Customs authorities in central China's Henan Province are investigating a smuggling case involving 30 million yuan (4.2 million U.S. dollars) worth of metal detectors.
Officers of Zhengzhou Customs recently found abnormal changes in the prices of metal detectors imported by a company during an inspection.
The customs launched an investigation and found the importer deliberately made counterfeit contracts, invoices and other documents for customs declaration, and falsified the prices of some products to evade taxes.
Zhengzhou Customs apprehended a suspect from the company and seized more than 200 sets of metal detectors worth about 1 million yuan last week.
The customs said that millions of yuan in taxes was evaded in the case. Further investigation is underway.
