Brothers had 250g of heroin in Kinder Eggs up their bums

Two brothers from Liverpool were found with £24,800 (€29,500) worth of heroin stuffed up their bums in Kinder Eggs.

The drugs had been wrapped in small bags, contained inside the kids’ chocolate eggs, and inserted up their back sides.

James and Sean Kenny, aged 21 and 23 respectively pleaded guilty at a hearing at Plymouth Crown Court.

The court heard how James had £10,900 of heroin and Sean was carrying £13,900 of the gear, which was between 20% and 30% pure.

Sean Kenny had run up a large drug debt and roped his brother in to help smuggle the heroin, the court heard.

James Kenny,  who had no previous convictions and was a man of good character, had ‘little awareness’ of the scale of the operation.

Judge Ian Lawrie sentenced Sean to four years in prison and handed his brother a two-year suspended jail sentence.
