Housrou Kedji is scheduled to be arraigned in federal court Friday after being caught as he tried to board an Air France flight leaving Bush Intercontinental Airport. He is charged with two counts of drug-trafficking.
The 42-year-old citizen of the African nation of Togo gave up 2.2 pounds of his illicit cargo while sitting on a special no-flow toilet under the eyes of federal agents and doctors at a local hospital.
Kedji brought attention to himself when he attempted to board his flight four weeks ago. He looked suspicious because he was acting nervous and sweating profusely. He also gave conflicting accounts of what he was up to in Huston.
He allegedly confessed that he had traveled to Houston from Togo, and was headed to Switzerland to make $6,500 for his efforts. The cocaine was parceled into packets of a few grams apiece and wrapped in the condoms. Suspicions were confirmed by a hospital X-ray machine. Luckily for him none of the condoms bursted.
