Just a week after a drug bust in which police found drugs hidden in a Kinder Surprise Egg in Rehovot, Ramle police over the weekend cracked their own drug trafficking case involving a dealer hiding cocaine in the plastic toy capsule of the popular children’s chocolate treat.
Police said Sunday they had arrested a Ramle man in his 20s after he had been stopped and searched at a checkpoint. In his car, police found what appeared to be hashish or marijuana in plastic bags.
Inside the Kinder Surprise capsule officers found a smaller bag of cocaine.
Undercover Rehovot police officers were successful in their own egg hunt at the beginning of the month. On Tuesday, police filed charges against a suspected drug dealer in his 20s, who had been making home narcotics deliveries by electric scooter.
Drugs previously hidden in a Kinder egg
Searching the courier, police found a Kinder egg, which was filled with doses of crystal meth and heroin. Kinder Surprise eggs are hollow chocolate eggs that contain a plastic toy that requires assembly.
The plastic capsules have a long history of being used to conceal and transport illicit substances around the world.
