12 ounce cocaine shipment intercepted before reaching the Vatican

Customs officials intercept shipment of cocaine on its way to the Vatican

By John Vibes

(INTELLIHUB) — Customs officers at Leipzig airport in Germany found 340 grams (12 ounces) of cocaine packed into 14 condoms, inside a shipment of cushions coming from South America.

This type of thing happens fairly often, but what makes this story interesting, is that this package was apparently on its way to the Vatican.

The package was  addressed to the Vatican postal office, but was sent with no other information.

Since there was not a more specific delivery address or recipient, this package could have been ordered by any one of Vatican city’s residents.

According to the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag, there was also a sting operation planned that sought to lure out the recipient of the package, but they were unable to identify a suspect.

The packaged waited for months as police were monitoring it, and no one came by to pick it up.
