The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBŚ) arm of Police police has concluded a dramatic raid on a ring of drug smugglers, and arrested seven individuals.

The drug couriers would infiltrate cocaine into the country by transporting it in their stomachs.

"Officers from the Department of Drug Management Board in the Kielce branch of CBŚ has investigated this group for a long time," CBŚ spokesperson Katarzyna Balcer told PAP.

"They found that [the gang] smuggled very high quality cocaine to Poland, and then they would distribute it around the country. The leader of the group, who was also a mule, was arrested red-handed, as there were still drugs in his stomach."

The drugs were smuggled from South American countries, mainly Peru.

Apart from cocaine and marijuana, police also found numerous mobile phones, bundles of cash as well as portable scales.
