Vietnamese police have seized over 3,40,000 used condoms that were cleaned and to be illegaly resold to unsuspected customers, a report by local media said.
A footage by a local television channel showed dozens of large bags containing used contraceptives scattered around in a warehouse that was recently raided in the southern province of Binh Doug.
Condoms were washed, reshaped with wooden dildos
The condoms were reportedly washed, reshaped with wooden dildos and then repackaged before being resold. Police has said that the bags together weighed around 360 kgs, equivalent to around, 3,40,000 condoms.
A woman, who is believed to be the owner of the warehouse, has been arrested.
Owner of warehouse got money for every kilogram of condoms
The arrested woman said that she had received a “monthly input of used condoms from an unknown person”. She also said that she received $0.17 (Rs 12.51 approximate) for every kilogram of recycled condoms she produced, according to the local TV channel.
It is, however, unclear how many such condoms have already been resold on the market.
