German customs officials discovered 14 cocaine-filled condoms in a package marked for delivery to the Vatican.

The condoms contained 340 grams of liquid cocaine, valued at around $55,000.

The parcel was addressed to the main postal center at the Vatican and was mailed from somewhere in South America.

After German officials found out what was in the package, they attempted to set up a sting operation with the help of Vatican police to catch the intended recipient, but no one ever claimed the drug-filled piece of mail.

According to the Independent, Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi confirmed that German authorities and the Vatican police had attempted to entrap the recipient.

Authorities believe that the person may have been tipped off about the sting.
