Sandwich A La Drug Dealers: Traffickers Caught With Drugs In Their Snack
OK, here’s the tip: if you are drug smuggler on the run from the law (and for Pete sake, we hope you’re not!), at the very least try to think through the place where you will hide your “goods”. Unlike two Colombian gentlemen who are now part of the chain-gang, all thanks to their naivete.
Spanish police force has reported that their representatives have arrested two men at Benidorm bus station after suspicion that they may have illegal substances on their hands. They were reported by Colombian authorities who had first-hand information that they traveled to Spain, carrying certain amount of drugs.
The traffickers, who were obviously hoping for the best, tried to conceal their drug possesions, but they did not out-smart the Spanish police. After a short search, the policemen took a peak into their snack sandwich. And surely enough, it contained much more than cheese and salami.
The sandwich contained 100 grams of drugs in small packets. The finding was so incredible that the policemen took a picture of the strange “delicacy” and tweeted it.
After that, they broke into the flat of one of them and found further evidence that some serious drug trafficking was at hand. As they reported, more than “a kilo of cocaine powder and pieces, as well as marijuana and tools to handle drugs”.
With the methods and techniques of drug detection getting better and more reliable, and more organized missions of breaking the chains of drug mafias, the smugglers have turned to more creative ways of trying to get away with their crime. So far, the most common practice was to hide packages of drugs in their bodily cavities, hoping that no one would search them there.
One recent bizarre case involves drug smugglers accidentaly sending $7 million worth of cocaine to a supermarket store in banana boxes that were supposed to go into sale right away. A Canadian scuba diver was caught trying to smuggle a significant amount of marijuana underwater. And one particularly courageous and unfortunate Colombian woman was arrested at the Spanish airports with bags of cocaine (wait for it…) implanted in her breasts!
The game of cat and mice between law enforcers and drug smugglers will be long and dramatic one, experts suspect. Despite the increase in number of exposed criminals, the dangerous and illegal substances still find their way to black markets in huge amounts. Let’s hope that this social disease will soon meet its demise.
