Condoms filled with cocaine seized at airport

SIX condoms filled with liquid cocaine were seized by Revenue officers after they searched a passenger's luggage at Dublin Airport.

The condoms were concealed in two shampoo bottles inside the baggage of a passenger embarking from a flight from Buenos Aires. The suspect was detained and was found to have ingested a further three condoms of liquid cocaine.

The total street value of the kilogram of cocaine was estimated at about €70,000.

This was the second cocaine seizure at the airport within a week. In an earlier incident, officers seized 2.44kg of cocaine with a street value of €170,800, when they stopped a passenger stepping off a flight from Madrid.
