What a pickle! Dutch men nabbed with Ecstasy in gherkin jars.
Two Dutch men ended up behind bars on Tuesday after a plan to transport more than 25,000 Ecstasy pills through France in gherkin jars turned sour.
The men, aged 43 and 48, were caught during a random control by customs agents in northern France a week ago.
Customs officials said Tuesday they found 26,700 Ecstasy tablets in the gherkin jars with a street value estimated at 200,000 euros ($250,000).
The men, who were on their way to Spain, were on Monday sentenced to 30 and 24 months in prison respectively.
