Man unsuccessfully attempts to smuggle 120g of cocaine into Australia in Kinder Eggs

An Irish national has been charged in Australia for attempting to smuggle 120g of cocaine into the country inside six Kinder Surpise Capsules.

After testing positive for traces of cocaine on his baggage, Australian Border Force officers took him to the Royal Melbourne Hospital for a CT scan – revealing the presence of the drugs stashed inside his body, according to a statement by Border Force and the Australian Federal Police.

The Irishman later excreted the capsules, commonly found within egg-shaped milk chocolates for kids.

Officers charged him with importing a marketable quantity of a border controlled drug, which can carry a penalty of up to 25 years in prison.

The man appeared at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 30th December 2022, and remains in custody awaiting a later trial date.

AFP Detective Acting Superintendent, Chris Salmon, said: “Smuggling drugs internally is idiotic – there is the real risk that something could go wrong, resulting in a potentially fatal drug overdose or permanent damage to internal organs.”
