The arrest took place in Strasbourg and a further search of the man turned up 13,000 Swiss francs ($13,500).

According to reports, the man allegedly told the customs agents that he lived in Spain and is a dishwasher at a restaurant in the Balearic Islands.

However, a sniffer dog detected marijuana on the banknotes hidden in his clothing. This led to an x-ray which revealed the ingested condoms.

He has been charged with money laundering and lying to customs authorities.
