Gang hides drugs in cock- shaped can­dles

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

MORE than 1,300lbs of killer death drug crys­tal meth hid­den in­side COCK- SHAPED can­dles has been seized.

In a sto­ry­line which sounds straight from the drama Break­ing Bad, pros­e­cu­tors said they have un­cov­ered a new means to con­ceal the drug as they charged five peo­ple they say con­spired to hide meth in the wax can­dles.

Drug En­force­ment Ad­min­is­tra­tion agents found 27 card­board boxes con­tain­ing the phal­lic can­dles in a New Jersey ware­house in a st­ing in­volv­ing un­der­cover cops.

The of­fi­cers dis­cussed with the de­fen­dants how the ware­house would be used to con­vert the can­dles into crys­tal meth.

A spokesman from the DEA’s New York field of­fice said: “We’ve seen drugs smug­gled in nu­mer­ous ways. But hid­ing a mil­lion dol­lars’ worth of meth in cock can­dles is shock­ing.”
