Smuggling is one of the larger illegal industries in New Eden. Each nation in the cluster has numerous underground distribution cartels sourcing all sorts of illicit goods. Tracking the movement of ships and their cargo across borders is a monumental task that often spreads customs agents thin. For this reason, it isn’t hard for a determined smuggler to find loopholes that they can exploit in the busy shipping schedules.

Template:Warning On warp in all hostiles except 3 frigates and a cruiser warp away after a few seconds. Author waited about 2 minutes but those 4 (on overview as Watchman) stayed. Author destroyed the array first and once it was destroyed the smuggler structures all exploded as well. Destroyed the 4 Watchman ships and looted the cargo container from the array destruction. You do not need to destroy the ships to complete the mission. You can complete mission once the array is destroyed.
We caught someone trying to flee the scene; we think he knows something about the guys running this whole operation. He’s been taken into questioning. If he does know anything, we’ll have the information ourselves very shortly.
