Luggage At Airports

WARNING about luggage and drugs in airport  -  SERIOUS  REAL  LIFE  WARNING

A  senior police officer who used to look after Drugs Enforcement.   He said that the current trick is for either :

  Slip drugs into your luggage at the luggage belt, especially soft luggage with many external side pockets, and let you carry it out through Custom, and get from you outside if you get through.  Many unsuspecting passengers have been arrested this way
.

        PREVENTION : use hard suitcases with no side pockets

 Sometimes there will be old lady who will pretend not to be able to carry the luggage and ask you to help carry out through Custom.

       PREVENTION : Never help anyone carry luggage out
       
He said that these practices are mostly in China, India, Sydney, and several other airports.  Many  are in jail overseas and some have been executed !
