Ten customs officials in French Polynesia have been given suspended jail sentences of up to three years for corruption.
They were found to have turned a blind eye to some imports such as car parts and in return got discounted car repairs.
The court has banned from working as customs officials and fined them more than $US5000.
The defence says the verdict will be appealed in France's highest court, which means the sentence is suspended.
Three years ago, the garage owner had been given a seven-year jail term for smuggling drugs inside car parts into the territory.
The customs officials said they were unaware of the drug trafficking.
