BARBADIANS HAVE BEEN coming up with sophisticated and creative ways to smuggle narcotics in and out of the island, leaving authorities here and overseas scratching their heads.
Drug dealers have smuggled cocaine in oil filters, buttons, wooden pallets, candles, on-board aircraft, and, get this, even in bibles.
Head of the Drug Squad, Inspector Cecil Watson, told the SUNDAY SUN that those involved in the illegal drug trade “usually have time to plan and use methods in order to deceive”, pointing out that there was even a case where cocaine was discovered in peanut shells.
According to him, the most common method was the use of latex such as condoms. Drug mules usually ingest the drugs in this form or transport it in body cavities. (MB)
