An Anglican priest has been detained in Moscow International Airport for attempting to smuggle cocaine into Russia in his stomach. The priest from Columbia has been identified as Fabio Ricardo Rodriguez.
He was taken to hospital where 13 containers with cocaine were extracted from his stomach and intestines. In addition five other containers were found in his luggage at Moscow International Airport.
The cocaine was put into condoms which the priest then swallowed in an attempt to sail through customs without suspicion. Drug Control Service reported that the police became suspicious after Rodriguez was acting suspiciously and visibly looked sick.
The priest could serve 10-15 years for his crime.
