2 Haredis were caught carrying a suitcase with some pretty heavy supplies of cocaine
Israeli customs officials recently arrested two ultra-Orthodox men at Ben Gurion Airport in possession of 7.5 kilograms (16.5 pounds) of cocaine stashed in a suitcase.
Several other men are suspected of involvement in attempt to smuggle the illegal substance, Channel 2 reported Friday.
[...] The bust was the latest in a series of arrests of alleged drug smugglers attempting to sneak illegal substances into the country. In July officers seized five kilograms (11 pounds) of ecstasy found in liquid form in a man’s suitcase.
The drug, said to be worth NIS 2 million ($524,000), was concealed inside wine bottles and absorbed within the walls of a suitcase.
Three ultra-Orthodox Israeli men were also nabbed in July for allegedly operating an international drug trafficking operation after authorities found thousands of ecstasy pills on their person at the airport.
One can only wonder how many people in the Haredi community itself are hooked on that crap. The case certainly proves there's some truly awful activities going on in their insular world.
