Man hid wraps of cocaine in his underpants

Police in Antwerp have detained a man that was found to have a total of 21 wraps of cocaine concealed in his underpants. On Saturday evening two men had tried to escape a police check by driving into a police car. As police detained them it was discovered that one of the men had 21 wraps of cocaine stashed in his underwear.   

The police then carried out a search of the suspect’s home where they found another 135 wraps of the Class A drug. The man’s mother had initially tried to get rid of the drugs by throwing them into a neighbour’s garden.

One of the two men detained had only been released from custody on conditional licence 5 days ago. Both men are being questioned by an Examining Magistrate.
