Tag Archives: 72 bags
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.
