    Cocaine smuggler nabbed

    A customs officer checks cotton-padded jackets, inside which a Belarusian man hid cocaine, at the Pudong airport.
    A Belarus national who hid nearly 1,800 grams of cocaine in cotton-padded jackets has been detained at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, customs said yesterday.
    When the man got off a flight from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on July 31, he chose the “nothing to declare” channel. But when customs officers checked his luggage, they found it odd that he had four winter coats with him.
    An officer recalled a case in Macau where a drug smuggler had mixed cocaine in the cotton inside clothes to avoid detection by the X-ray machine. The drug could later be separated by soaking the cotton in water.
    When customs officers at the Pudong airport tore open the jackets, they found white powder in each of them which tested positive for cocaine.
