Australian police find drugs in toys, diapers
An Australian police unit has been busting up drug rings -- and finding their goods stashed in all manner of children's amusements, according to this report:
After unrelated arrests, three men - Jinshui Lin, Jiansham Zheng and Shigan Xie - faced Sydney's Central Local Court on Wednesday charged with importing and possessing 60g of ice hidden in a pink teddy bear.
The police will allege the bear came with a Tonka truck and a birthday card in its plastic wrapper, with no writing.
As well as the pink teddy bear, the drugs were allegedly hidden in items such as hollowed-out magazines, plastic bottles and figurines, while almost half a kilogram of heroin was found in a nappy.
A "nappy," it appears, is what a diaper is called Down Under.
