A man was caught smuggling drugs into Listen Out on the weekend in Melbourne by using Vegemite, cling wrap and his penis.
In one of the more creative smuggling stories you’re likely to hear this year, News Corp are reporting that police busted a man who had covered drugs in Vegemite and then cling-wrapped them around his penis.
Port Phillip Acting Inspector Stuart Bailey said that there were “several males” caught with drugs strapped to their privates but only one added Vegemite into the mix.
“One smothered his MDMA in Vegemite believing the … dog would not be able to detect his drugs. Wrong,” he said.
He was picked up by sniffer dogs during a police operation that saw 24 people found trying to take drugs into the festival.
Earlier today, Melbourne police said that they were “disappointed” with the amount of people caught with illegal drugs at the Melbourne leg of the festival.
On the other hand, Bailey said, “The crowd was really well-behaved.”
The festival will continue in Sydney and Brisbane this weekend.
