    Background: The police raid "Bazaar", Warsaw's popular market.

    They are accompanied by the controller of the Treasury and members of the Union of Socialist Youth.

    They are searching for contraband and imported goods which have been bought up by black marketeers in the State shops and resold in the "Bazaar" at exorbitant rates of profit.

    The raid yielded fantastic results. Goods worth hundreds of thousand zlotys were found deserted by their blackmarket owners who decamped leaving the goods behind rather than face arrest and answer to charge of the violation of the customs and Treasury regulations or for trading in stolen property.
