As part of the reinforcement of border controls between Haiti and the Dominican Republic, a patrol vessel of the Dominican Navy, in coordination with the General Directorate of Customs, intercepted in the area of ​​Punta Rucia, Puerto Plata (North), a boat carrying a cargo of nearly 3 million contraband cigarettes from Haiti.

Reports provided by the Navy indicate that the boat's captain, Margarito Balbuena Vargas and ten other people on board, were stopped by the naval patrol boat.
