Bulgarian authorities have seized nearly 50 kilograms (25 pounds) of heroin from a Romanian truck stopped at a border crossing with Romania en route from Turkey, customs officials said Monday. 

The drugs had been divided out into nearly 100 sachets and hidden in the cooling system of a brick production unit being transported by the truck. The driver, a Romanian citizen, was arrested.
