A Happy Buenos Aires

This just in:

Buenos Aires, Sept 15 (Prensa Latina) A Dutch citizen was arrested at Ezeiza international airport, in this capital, carrying more than 26,000 pills of ecstasy, Argentine authorities said on Friday.

The 58-year-old man, whose identity was not disclosed, came from Amsterdam, Holland, and arrived in Buenos Aires on Thursday night via Madrid on an Iberia flight.

Sources from the Customs Police were surprised because the man had succeeded to get around security measures at two modern and well-equipped European airports.

They added that due to their low content of amphetamines, it is hard to detect the pills, but the Argentine officers showed great skill in their work.

This was the largest shipment of ecstasy seized in Argentina over the past ten years, they said, and the third drug capture over the past three days, so experts think drug addiction is increasing in the country.

I'd like to think this has less to do with addiction and more to do with the upcoming Bjork concert. ;-)
