Cops confiscated over 345,000 “recycled” condoms, the country’s state media reports. The raid occurred this week inside a warehouse and was later shown on state media as cops removed large bags of the contraceptives.
The warehouse owner said they had received a “monthly input of used condoms from an unknown person,” state newspaper Tuoi Tre reported. One of the people busted during the raid allegedly told police that the condoms are boiled in water after they are received and then dried, reshaped, repackaged and resold.
The employee said she made $.17 for every kilogram of the recycled condoms they produced, according to police. It was unclear how many of the recycled condoms have been sold.
