Police and DEA officials are investigating the origins of 40 pounds of cocaine found at the U.N.'s headquarters last week by site security personnel during a routine security scan. "The United Nations nor anyone located in the United Nations was the intended recipient of this delivery and the bags were not UN bags, diplomatic or other," said a spokesman for the organization. Do people without diplomatic immunity typically think it will be totally unproblematic to bring large quantities of illegal drugs through security scanners? Just wondering.
