According to The New Zealand Herald, the plot was uncovered after the man failed a drug test at the airport which made security officials suspicious of him. He was then taken for further examination at a local hospital where it was found that the man had hidden about 127 grams of cocaine in a fake penis.
Upon the discovery, he allegedly told investigators that he intended to use the cocaine for personal use and that he was given them in Jamaica while visiting his mother.
Meanwhile, the prosecutors of the case have demanded a sentence of up to 36 months but his defense team have deemed it too harsh owing to the man’s physical condition.
‘My client has kidney failure and needs to exercise as well as follow a proper diet,’ his lawyer said, according to the report.
He is set to be sentenced on June 24th.
