Mules arrested in Toulouse with cocaine ingested

France 3/Scoop, Sep 5

On August 30, Toulouse customs officials arrested two young men from Paris who had ingested nearly two kilos of cocaine between them.

These types of “mules” often travel by plane, but this time customs officials caught them arriving from Paris by train.

They found narcotics in their luggage, and after further tests they found nearly two kilos of cocaine in their stomachs. The two men were risking their lives by ingesting such a large amount in protected ‘eggs’.

The men were arrested and are now behind bars awaiting trial. Presumably the police have carried out the nasty job of recuperating the cocaine.
