(Newser) – Let the party-at-the-Vatican jokes begin: German Customs authorities have intercepted a package of 14 condoms filled with cocaine and headed for the Vatican, reports RTE via Bild. The condoms contained about 12 ounces of the drug, worth an estimated $55,000. As the AP reports, the package was mailed from an unnamed Latin American country and addressed to the Vatican's post office—meaning that any of its 800 residents could have claimed it. German officials attempted a sting, but say they think the intended recipient had been tipped off.
