Official Vatican Car Caught with Cocaine, Cannabis



Two Italians, 30 and 41, whose names have not been revealed, have been arrested for using an official Vatican car with diplomatic plates to transport cocaine and cannabis in France.

When law enforcement searched the Vatican vehicle, they found four kilos of cocaine and 200 grams of cannabis.

It appeared that the car belonged to the Argentine Cardinal Jorge Maria Mejia, 91, retired librarian of the Holy See, who is now recovering after a heart attack.

According to reports, the Cardinal’s private secretary had given the car to the two Italian men few days earlier, to take it for its annual checkup. French RTL radio said the two men used the car to drive to Spain to buy the drugs, assuming they would be protected by the diplomatic plates. They were reportedly on the way back when French police stopped them.
