I had no idea the Irish were interested in drugs given their fascination and addiction to alcohol. This youngster dared to do something even the most hardened drug smugglers in Mexico have fears of doing.
A young Irishman is contemplating spending the next decade and a half in jail after he tried to sneak past Brazilian customs with a kilo of cocaine hidden in his guts.
The 20-year-old holidaymaker, identified only as P.B.B., was stopped as he tried to board a flight back to Europe from Sao Paolo’s Congonhas airport.
He had somehow managed to stuff 72 bags, containing almost a kilo of coke with a street value of up to 150,000 euros, down his throat, according to police.
After he was noticed acting suspiciously, it was decided that he would be taken to Santa Misericordia Hospital, where scans revealed the abundance of cocaine pellets in his gut. It really is a shame for this poor sap that he had so much cocaine in his system, yet didn’t really get to enjoy the advantages of cocaine in his system. I mean, if you’re going to go through that much trouble to bring cocaine into another country, I’m sure you’d be looking forward to doing some of the product, as well as reaping the financial benefits. Instead he is facing up to 15 years in a Brazilian prison. Lesson learned? Don’t act nervous when your gut has nearly a KILO of Cocaine packed tightly inside.
