16 Kilos of Cocaine Accidentally Mailed to U.N. Headquarters
Jan 30, 2012 13:14
According to the Times, the cocaine was sent
inside fake diplomatic pouches before finally ending up in the UN's mailroom last
week. In total, the amount of cocaine mailed is estimated to have a street value of $2 million:
New York Police spokesman Paul Browne said the powder, discovered
January 16, was in two white bags meant to look like diplomatic pouches,
stamped with a bogus U.N. logo and sent from Mexico City through a DHL
shipping center in Cincinnati. But a real U.N. diplomatic pouch is blue,
has a lock and features the authentic seal of the organization. By
international law, those pouches are not normally inspected or opened.
Authorities believe that these fake pouches, which originated from Mexico, were meant to ensure the
packages made it through border security without being inspected.
