A British man was caught trying to smuggle cocaine in an artificial penis at Brussels Airport.
The man, flying into BRU from Jamaica, was arrested on 08FEB,BrusselsTimesreported. At the time of arrest, he failed a drug test and was transferred to a hospital for a more in-depth investigation.
That's where doctors and police officers discovered that the man was equipped with fake phallus, in which 127 grams of white powder was hidden.
The man said he had visited his mother in Jamaica, and an acquaintance there had offered him cocaine. He told investigators the cocaine was intended for personal use once he returned home. (We can only hope the prosthetic penis was also only intended for personal use.)
The man was sentenced to 38 months in prison last Friday, according to BrusselsTimes.
Just goes to show you shouldn't try to smuggle cocaine willy-nilly.
