Police guards at the Tyre prison on Saturday thwarted an attempt to smuggle a quantity of hashish that was hidden in a number of potatoes.

“Palestinian national M. A., 22, was arrested after he tried to smuggle a quantity of hashish that was stuffed into 16 potatoes in a crafty manner,” the Internal Security Forces said in a statement.

The unusual meal was destined for 33-year-old Palestinian prisoner R. F., the ISF added.

This is not the first time smugglers have resorted to bizarre ideas in their attempts to breach prison security measures.

On October 22, guards foiled a bid to smuggle hundreds of Benzhexol pills and an amount of hashish that were hidden in a pair of shoes into the al-Qobbeh prison in Tripoli.

In July, security forces at the Aley prison seized a quantity of hashish that was hidden in “21 pistachio shells.”

Earlier in the year, security guards at the Zahle prison foiled separate attempts to smuggle drugs in a toothpaste tube, meat pastries, meat sandwiches and apricots.

If we had stability and job opportunities, those creative skills would be used for haute cuisine instead of crime.
