This Is How 72 Bags Of Cocaine Look Inside Your Intestines

A 20-year-old Irish man was caught by the Brazilian Federal Police with 72 bags of cocaine inside his intestines. This is how he looked inside, using a three-dimensional computed tomography body scanner. It’s actually more disgusting than I expected.

In total, he was carrying 830 gra,s of coke when he was arrested on September 12 at Congonhas Airport in Sao Paulo, Brazil, when he was about to take a flight to Brussels, Belgium. That’s $US207,000 in the market.

Drug mules get paid from $US1600 to more than $US8000 per trip. [Independent via MSNBC]
