It’s certainly a discovery that's hard to swallow. Put end to end, the condoms would stretch out to a length of 18 feet, according to a border official. The Nigerian cocaine courier had swallowed the condoms by coating each one with wax, so they slipped down that bit easier.
He was dicing with death every step of the way, though. Even a slightly split condom would have led to a fatal overdose.Border guard spokesman Michel Bachar said: "It was an exceptional find.”The smuggler was part of a gang of four men who tried to evade security at a border checkpoint near Geneva in a French-registered car.Another 1.3kg of cocaine was hidden in the stomachs of the other three men.
Talk about having an appetite for crime.
