Vietnamese police detained a group of people who were buying used condoms and selling them after the “recovery”. A total of 345,000 used condoms were confiscated by the tourist country’s law enforcement officials.
Vietnamese state television channel VTV this week showed a report on how a warehouse in the southern province of Binh Dong found a dozen large bags containing used condoms, reports Reuters.
Police said the bags weighed more than 360 kilograms, equivalent to 345,000 condoms, according to VTV. The warehouse owner said they received a month’s worth of cargo from an unknown person, the Tuoi Tre newspaper reported. The woman detained during the search shared the details: at the beginning, the condoms were placed in boiling water, then dried and shaped with a wooden phallus. It is not known how many condoms were sold. According to the detainee, she received 17 cents for each processed kilo of condoms.
