The man was already blown on September 19, 2020 during a joint control by the police and customs at the airport. The 45-year-old Nigerian citizen who traveled from Brussels got caught up in contradictions during a questioning. The investigators’ suspicions were subsequently confirmed during a CT examination in a Vienna hospital.
The 45-year-old was arrested and taken to the Vienna-Josefstadt prison by order of the Korneuburg public prosecutor’s office. According to the police, he left no fewer than 214 containers of cocaine and heroin of around ten grams each over a three-day period. Ultimately, 1,905 grams of cocaine and 200 grams of heroin were seized.
