Drug busts are not unique in America or in any location on the globe. Yet according to Fox News there is one destination where cocaine was headed that definitely would raise more than a few eyebrows. That’s because due to the intervention of the German customs officials a shipment of cocaine was headed directly to the Pope’s Vatican in January.
It is fairly certain that Pope Francis and the officials of the Holy See are not involved in drug dealing or smuggling. This is why there is a developing mystery behind the reasons for the drug shipment that was headed to the Vatican postal office.
The cocaine shipment was disguised in 14 condoms that were placed inside a shipment cushions that were arriving from South America, reported Fox News. The papal officials and the German custom agents are most likely going to be focusing their attention on anyone of the official 800 residents who live in Vatican City and have the capacity to pick up mail and packages at the post office.
According to the Miami Herald, the investigation is still open and the street value of the confiscated drugs would have been several tens of thousands of Euros.
