Crack cocaine Easter baskets in Brazil

Rio de Janeiro police seize shipment chocolate Easter boxes containing crack

Nothing says Easter quite like chocolate and crack cocaine.

Rio de Janeiro police seized more than a thousand carefully-wrapped crack rocks during a dawn raid on the Sao Sebastiao slum today, drugs that were hidden inside boxes of Easter chocolate. Police said the extra-potent chocolate boxes had been re-sealed, presumably, for resale over the Easter weekend. Four men were carrying several cases of these boxes into the slum when they were spotted by police. They dropped the goods and fled, police said, and no arrests were made. Each box contained 10 doses of crack, police said, wrapped in blue cellophane and hidden among the chocolates. Just so you know what to stay away from on Easter morning, police released this video of the seized items.
