Prague customs officers revealed on Wednesday that a Lithuanian man had been detained at Prague airport at the weekend trying to smuggle almost 750 grams of cocaine into the country, which he had swallowed in capsules. The man had been travelling from Sao Paolo via Zurich, customs authority spokesman Jiří Barták said. Suspicious behaviour by the man prompted officials to test him for the presence of drugs, confirmed by a computer tomography scan. On the street, the cocaine would have been worth more than 1.5 million crowns, the customs official said.
