Perhaps they should have tried the brown market, instead.
Swedish police said they arrested two men accused of attempting to smuggle more than 25,000 diapers from Norway to eastern Europe.
Investigators said the Lithuanian nationals, whose identities were not released, were stopped by police in Jamtland, and officers soon discovered their van was hauling 25,175 fresh disposable diapers.
Police said the diapers were purchased in Norway, where diapers cost less than $1 apiece, and were likely designed for the black market in eastern Europe, where the products can retail for considerably more money.
Stefan Fredriksson of the Jamtland police told the Expressen newspaper the smugglers failed to disclose the contents of their van when they crossed the border.
"They did not report that they were transporting the goods across the border from Norway to Sweden. You are accountable to report it to customs and pay the duty fee," Fredriksson said.
He said police spent all night counting the diapers so they would have an accurate count of the 25,175 disposable infant garments.
