Providenciales, TCI, September 12, 2016 – Condoms; first introduced in the year 1855 as a means of birth control with their popularity and importance soaring once HIV/AIDS became an epidemic.
It is still important to curtailing sexually transmitted diseases and even a new mosquito borne virus, namely ZIKA is fended off with the use of a condom.
On Wednesday 44 year old Eddy Cerant took condom use to an entirely new level… at least in recent history. Police say the man, now charged with possession of controlled drugs used a transparent condom to store cocaine.
Add to the strange choice of a hiding place for the cocaine, the man hid the 144 grams or four ounces of illicit drugs in his anal area; that is where Police found it when he was searched after disembarking a flight from Grand Turk on September 8, 2016.
The man entered a guilty plea on Friday and is sentenced to 9 months in jail for the crime; after which he will be deported to Haiti.
A tip to Police led to the search, arrest and conviction of Eddy Cerant.
