Man Arrested at YVR After Swallowing 42 Condoms of Cocaine

It was like a scene out of the movie: Maria Full of Grace – about a Colombian teen swallows condoms full of cocaine to smuggle to the U.S.
Only this was a real scenario that recently played out at Vancouver International Airport.
A man was arrested as a suspected drug trafficker April 26. He had swallowed 42 cocaine-filled condoms before trying to  fly to Australia.
The Canada Border Services Agency released a few details about what happened, but not the man’s identity. He has not yet been charged.
 Alert border guards suspected something was up with the traveller. Questionning the man further, it became apparent he had swallowed drugs.
