MOSCOW -(Dow Jones)- A consignment of smuggled Nokia mobile phones was
seized in St. Petersburg at the end of last week, the Vedomosti daily
said Tuesday, citing customs officials.

The paper quoted Alexander Yablokov, a spokesman for the Baltiiskaya
Customs House, as saying the phones, whose value he put at EUR600,000,
arrived without the necessary customs documents.

The seizure follows the arrest of several large consignments of
contraband phones in Moscow in August and comes as part of an ongoing
operation by Russian law enforcement agencies, it added.
