A man from Britain that was caught at the Brussels Airport while trying to smuggle cocaine into Belgium with the help of an artificial penis was arrested by the police.
The man has also been sentenced to spend 38 months in prison.
The man was arrested on February 8, 2020, when he landed at Brussels Airport on a flight from Jamaica.
The man, whose identity was not shared with the public, tested positive for cocaine.
Authorities later transferred the man to the University Hospital of Jette in Brussels for a more in-depth investigation.
At the hospital, police officers and doctors established that the man had been equipped with an artificial penis.
Authorities said that the artificial penis had 127 grams of white powder in it, which was later identified as cocaine.
The British man said that he visited his mother in Jamaica, where an acquaintance offered him cocaine, which he accepted.
The man said that he took it with him so he could use it once he reaches his house.
The Public Prosecutor’s Office of Halle-Vilvoorde was initially asking for 36 months of prison time for the man, however, the defense asked to suspend the sentence as the British man was suffering from a number of health problems.
Well, this is something that I have never heard of before.
