Drug Mule Fail: Man caught smuggling heroin into China after telling customs officers he was a journalist

 

A foreign man, who claimed to be a journalist, was detained by Beijing Customs after they discovered heroin inside his sports shoes at Beijing Capital International Airport.

The alleged smuggler, whose identity and nationality have not been revealed, arrived in Beijing at 8 am on January 11. He told the customs officer he had nothing to declare, and being a reporter, he would stay in Beijing for a long time. It is not known where he boarded his flight.

“However, this self-declared reporter had no journalist visa which made him suspicious,” said a press release from Beijing customs. The suspect only had a small carry-on and a laptop bag, which contained no camera or other equipment.

Feng Lijing, media officer from Beijing Customs, said  that when they X-rayed the suspect’s belongings, they saw there were suspicious shadows in the shoes he was wearing.

“When our staff took the insoles out, we found two bags of white powder, which weighed 680 grams and was later proved to be heroin,” Feng said. Click below for full story -¬†
