Bolivian "Priest" Smuggled Cocaine Under Robes

A man claiming to be a Catholic priest was arrested in Amsterdam trying to smuggle nearly 10 pounds of cocaine under his robes.

When he approached a boarding gate, he refused to allow officials to search him on "religious grounds." When they noticed him going to a different gate, that immediately seized and searched him, finding 7.7 pounds of cocaine beneath his robes.

Even after arrest, the Bolivian man insisted he was actually a priest.

There are no "religious grounds" which prevent one from being allowed to be searched when entering Europe, according to an official.
