A 32-year-old man was sentenced by the Périgueux court (Dordogne) on Tuesday April 30, 2024. The man had been arrested a few days earlier, when he was having a kilo of cannabis delivered to his home, reports France Blue Périgord . It all started on Saturday April 20, 2024 when French customs agents intercepted a suspicious package at the Wissous sorting center (Essonne).

The package from the United States contained narcotics. It was to be delivered to a resident of Périgueux. Customs officers therefore alerted the police, who put in place a stratagem to arrest the recipient of this package. A police officer disguised himself as a postman and went to the indicated address. The man was received by an individual well known to the justice system.

The recipient of the package was none other than a thirty-year-old under house arrest under electronic bracelet for a year. He was arrested and tried in immediate appearance. At the hearing, the accused said he had done a friend a favor by giving him the address of his partner’s home so that the package could be sent there, reports South West . In exchange, he could keep some of the drugs. The man received an eight-month prison sentence with a committal warrant.
