Employees of the Post office alerted the police of Lannion (Côtes-d’Armor), this Thursday, April 29, after having spotted a package with a suspicious odor.
The workers at the sorting center were intrigued by the smell of cannabis that emanated from one of the couriers.
The police therefore went there, reports Ouest-France. In order to see who the recipient of this package was, the police decided to go undercover.
The man tried to recover his package under a false identity.
He was arrested by the police, this 40-year-old Rospezien explained that he had bought cannabis on the “dark web”, from a German vendor.
His package contained 3-4 grams of cannabis. But the story does not end there.
