Agents discovered a cache of 352 items, believed to have been stolen, in five garbage bags, two plastic bags and a suitcase, the Federal customs administration said on Tuesday.
The items included clothes with labelling still attached, alcohol, cosmetics, various food products, shoes and small electric appliances worth a total of 16,000 francs ($17,800), Customs said.
The discovery was made on September 15th but the person shipping the contraband remains unknown, officials said.
