Drugs Found Hidden in Mr. Potato Head Toy
Customs officers in Australia discovered nearly 10.5 ounces of ecstasy tablets hidden inside a Mr. Potato Head toy sent to Australia from Ireland.
Upon opening the parcel, the officers were greeted with the smiling face of the popular children's toy, which features a potato-like head and removable facial features. But when they removed a panel from the back of the toy, the officers were surprised to find nearly 11 ounces of ecstasy in a plastic bag.
The Australian Customs Service has reported the matter to federal police but no arrests have been made as of yet. The maximum penalty for importing drugs to Australia is life imprisonment.
"Whilst this is one of the more unusual concealments that we have seen in recent times, people need to be aware that Customs officers are alert to unusual and often outlandish methods of concealment," Customs Director Post Karen Williams warned other dealers.
