So, Who Sent Those Cocaine-Filled Condoms to The Vatican?

Customs officials in Germany recently intercepted a package of cocaine that was en route to the Vatican. The haul was not one of the bigger drug smuggles the officials had seen, but the packaging was certainly strange-- the 340 grams, or 12 ounces, of cocaine, were packed into 14 condoms inside a shipment of sofa cushions. Weird, weirder, weirdest, right?

The package was discovered at the airport in Leipzig. It was addressed simply to The Vatican Post Office-- there is only one post office in the Vatican since the micro-state only has 800 residents. Officials believe any one of those 800 could have been the one to pick up the package.

This is the second time cocaine was found inside a package addressed to The Vatican, but the last time the Vatican police failed to find the intended recipient of the package since nobody came to claim it. This suggests that maybe the Vatican police have somebody on the inside who might be involved with the drug smuggling. HOW INTENSE IS THIS?!

The cushions were en route from South America, explained the German customs report. A spokesman for the German customs office confirmed the report and the court of Leipzig plans to issue a statement today with more details on the case.

Reverend Federico Lombardi, spokesman for The Vatican, also confirmed that the Vatican police was working with German police to find the traffickers. The investigation will stay open until the perpetrators are found.

I truly cannot even imagine. If the Vatican police are helping smuggle drugs, well, this is going to make a very great movie directed by Martin Scorcese.
