Detection dogs have helped to uncover more than £27,500 worth of illegal tobacco in Scarborough.
The specialist dogs from Wagtail UK helped during intelligence lead coordinated raids by North Yorkshire County Council Trading Standards.
The dogs were able to identify illicit products hidden in cardboard boxes, kitchen shelving units and concealed drawers. Overall 29,000 cigarettes and 29.25kg of tobacco were discovered.
Illegal tobacco is considered to be more harmful and offenders can face unlimited fines and up to ten years in prison if found in possession.
