Suspects Hide Drugs in Potatoes
SOUTH AFRICA - Carving out the insides of a potato make me think of making crispy potato skins, but others might have more nefarious plans for the delicious spuds. For those of us who can’t imagine using potatoes for anything outside of mashed potatoes, you’re in for a root awakening. Two men will appear in the Upington Magistrate’s Court for smuggling drugs in hollowed out potatoes. The men were arrested on the evening of October 21 for drug dealing and possession of suspected stolen property, Arrive Alive said in a statement.
According to the information received, police were conducting stop and searches on the N14 road, where they saw two men who seemed restless when they saw police. One threw his bag on the ground before running away; he was caught and his bag was searched. Within it were vegetables concealing 248 mandrax tablets.
This use of spuds stands in starch contrast to my own.
