Slovakia’s customs investigation office seized a package mailed from Peru that allegedly contained more than a half of a kilogram of cocaine, the SITA newswire reported.
Miroslava Slemenská, the spokeswoman for the Customs Directorate, confirmed that the package was sent by a Peruvian citizen and that its accompanying documents stated that it contained Andean green tea.
Customs officers suspected that narcotics were in the shipment and sent a sample from the package for analysis, which confirmed that it contained substances from coca, including cocaine.
