    Poland nabs octogenarian with 5kg of heroin in suitcase

    WARSAW, POLAND (AP) – An 81-year-old Danish woman travelling from Africa to Canada was arrested at Warsaw airport on suspicion of illegal possession of heroin worth over USD515,000, officials in Poland said yesterday.

    Customs officers at Frederic Chopin airport decided to check the woman’s luggage last Sunday as she was transiting after becoming suspicious of her itinerary and uneasy behaviour. Packages with five kilogrammes of heroin were discovered under a false suitcase bottom.

    The woman, travelling from Malawi and Kenya through Doha and Warsaw, denied any wrongdoing and said family members gave her the suitcase with gifts for relatives in Canada, according to a spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office in Warsaw Aleksandra Skrzyniarz.
