A 73-year-old Spanish woman has avoided jail for a failed attempt to smuggle drugs to her incarcerated son by hiding them inside a Kinder egg plastic podule, wrapping that in a condom and inserting the contraband into her vagina.
The septuagenarian mule visited Fontcalent prison in Alicante on 1 July 2013, with the intention of handing her son an illicit €20, plus small amounts of cocaine, heroin and tranquillizers, with a street value of €82.
According to Antena 3, when she realised officers were going to search her, she voluntarily extracted and handed over the container, which is more normally used to protect a delightful toy inside the shell of Ferrero's finest ovate chocolate treat.
In court, the woman pleaded guilty, and she was finally sentenced last week to 21 months' prison. She was also fined a modest €41, following an agreement between prosecution and defence.
However, in delivering its verdict, the court suspended the jail time due to the perp's advanced age and previously clean record. ®
