Things I am passionate about. Injustice, stupidity, intolerance, bigotry and small-mindedness. Oh and there might just be some humor to offset the whole thing.

Just trying to get the bugs out?

Posted by morganwrites on October 12, 2007

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AFP) – As drug mules, bugs don’t carry much. And they didn’t get by customs in the Netherlands. A customs officer who took a close look at a consignment of more than 100 large, dead bugs sent from Peru to the Netherlands discovered cocaine had been stashed in their backs.

“We see a lot of things, but this was the first for us,” customs spokesman Kees Nanninga said.

“It looked like they were cut open, the drugs hidden in their backs and then they were glued back together again,” he said.

The insects held only about 10 ounces of cocaine, worth about $11,000, Nanninga said.

The discovery was made this summer in a routine checik at a postal sorting office, but was made public today. Nanninga said he did not know if anyone was prosecuted as a result of the find.
