El Salvador seized contraband, such as cigarettes, clothing, medicines and dairy products, and pirated goods worth nearly $30 million in 2010, the police said.
A total of 442 people, including 151 foreigners, were arrested in operations targeting the smuggling of tobacco products, liquor, clothing and food, especially beans and dairy products.
Ten facilities used to manufacture pirated CDs and DVDs were dismantled last year by the PNC, which seized nearly 15,000 pornographic DVDs worth $29,000.
