Shortly after the 18-year-old picked up the shipment at a postal terminal in Arlöv at the end of July last year, he was arrested in his apartment by the police. The cocaine was then left in the juicer because the German customs did not have the opportunity to replace it.
Now the 18-year-old is sentenced to five years and three months in prison for serious drug smuggling. A 22-year-old man is also sentenced by the Malmö district court for the same crime to five years and four months in prison.
The older comrade is deemed to have helped the 18-year-old by, for example, keeping an eye out for customs officers and police when the cocaine was handled in the apartment and giving the 18-year-old a screwdriver to be able to unscrew the juicer.
The 18-year-old man has stated that he did not know what the package contained, but if it was, the district court finds it strange that he paid SEK 400 for a taxi ride to the post terminal and SEK 1,200 in customs duty for a package that he does not know what it is contains.
The drug is estimated to have an average value of SEK 1.2 million wholesale and SEK 2.3 million on the street, according to the verdict.
