Perhaps she was investigating Kenya’s “primitive energy“ or was simply a pawn of foreign drug dealers, but a 3rd grade high school student has been arrested on suspicion of trafficking meth.
It was reported that 3.4 kilograms of methamphetamine was found in the wooden dolls she was carrying in her bag.
“Kim said she received the dolls and the bag from a worker of a local company where she worked, saying he asked her to take them to Seoul. After being tipped off about the drug transfer, the Kenyan drug squad was waiting along the road to the airport and searched the car she was riding in,” a ministry official said.
The Korean Foreign Ministry and the girl’s family say she was being used by a local drug trafficker and that she was only there to (ahem) prepare for life in the U.S.
“We are trying to prove her innocence, telling the Kenyan authorities that she is only a student and was there to gain work experience before applying to attend a U.S. college,” the official said.
The ministry also noted that yes, boys and girls, as we were all taught, when it seems to good to be true, it probably is.
“Recently, there are cases of members of foreign drug rings in Korea asking Korean nationals to deliver drugs or items in which drugs are hidden, to specific countries, offering free overseas travel in return,” the ministry said on the website.
