Officials have seized seven grams of crystal meth which were wrapped in a condom and hidden inside a man’s bottom after he appeared to be walking strangely while travelling from the Czech Republic to Germany.
Officers from the Main Customs Office seized a total of seven grams of crystal meth which the 43-year-old man tried to hide inside his behind while making sure to protect them from dissolving by wrapping them in a condom.
The incident happened in the Bad Brambach municipality in the Vogtlandkreis district the German state of Saxony on Wednesday, 16th June.
The Czech citizen from the German city of Plauen was spotted “acting suspiciously” during the regular control by customs officers and tested positive for drugs through a quick test, so the authorities decided to examine him thoroughly.
The unknown man reported that he was 43 years old and came to Germany from the Czech Republic on a rail replacement bus.
Shortly after, an x-ray revealed that the man was carrying drugs inside his body, which to the officers’ utter surprise were packed inside a clip bag inside his bottom, and explained his suspicious behaviour.
Additionally, the clip bag was put in a capsule-shaped pink plastic container and covered with a condom.
After the officers’ discovery the man, whose identity was not revealed, voluntarily gave up the container, but was issued a criminal complaint by the officials before being released to freely continue his journey after the inspection.
Officials did not reveal which methods were used by the officers to obtain the condom-covered pink container from the man.
If convicted, the act can be punished with imprisonment for up to four years, or with a fine.
