VLADIVOSTOK, December 23 (RIA Novosti) – Russian police seized 100 tons of counterfeit vodka in Russia’s Far Eastern Primorye Region, regional investigators said Monday.

Five train containers packed with containers of several varieties of vodka, all bearing forged labels, were confiscated, investigators said in a statement.

Investigators put the value of the illicit booze, thought to have originated in the North Caucasus Republic of North Ossetia, at about 5 million rubles ($150,000).

The alcohol is being examined by the Interior Ministry’s forensics department to determine where it was produced.
