A Dutch man was arrested after
pretending to be a Catholic priest and hiding cocaine in his robes.
The suspect raised suspicion when he refused to have a routine body
check at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport “for religious reasons”.
After attempting to go through a different gate, the man was searched
and Dutch police found seven lbs of cocaine taped to his body.
Police spokesman Robert van Kapel said: “We’ve seen a lot of things,
baseballs filled with cocaine, wine bottles, plaster casts, but this is a first.”
The man, who was travelling from Bolivia, has now complained his rights have been violated by the mandatory search, but Van Kapel said he will
have to present his case to a judge.
What a maroon! Everybody knows that if you
want to reduce your risk of being searched you dress as a Muslim cleric instead.
