- BERLIN — German customs officials have intercepted a package addressed to the Vatican containing 14 condoms filled with cocaine, a newspaper reported Sunday.
The Bild am Sonntag said that a box packed with 340 grams of cocaine valued at 40,000 euros ($55,200) were seized at the international airport in the eastern city of Leipzig in January.
The narcotics, posted from an unnamed South American country, were in liquid form and had been poured into the condoms and placed in the package addressed to the main postal center at the Vatican.
Condoms and cocaine in the Vatican? It’s something I never expected. Or am I just naive?
